Let me circle the wagon here. Financial growth is not the proper attribute to yield sustainability. Instead, contributions to the strengthening of the evolution of mankind are. Hence a growth-rate based on money is no reliable indication of a company’s sustainability (plus or minus), nor of the renewability that is the impetus to such sustainability.
Blind growth, as I call growth uncorrelated to evolutionary value, is merely an indication of the buy-in from (sometimes innocent) “greater-fools” enthralled by the rat-race for money, at the expense of evolutionary value. Money, you should know by now, does not equal evolutionary merit.
