Business as Usual:Continued Growth
NIGHTMARE: Economic Collapse
Concept of change: technological innovation and progress should be rapid and encouraged, as technological change drives economic growth. Social and political change should be incremental and rule (law) based, to promote stability. Environmental change: what’s that you say? the environment can change?
This archetype has many aliases: ”business as usual,” ”continued growth,” ”present trends extended,” ”the baseline scenario,” etc. If the capitalist world-system could vote to choose one of the archetypes as closest to its vision of a preferred future, this would be the archetype chosen.
