Every country seeks growth. Measured by the GDP of a country.
If a country’s GDP growth is positive, it could only mean 2 things or both simultaneously.
1) another country’s GDP is negative
2) there is inflation
In which case, either another country loses or lay people lose because the price of goods has increased.
Should we then be aiming for 0 GDP growth instead? Is there no better way to measure a country’s health?
