The economy of any country is dependent on the renewable strength of its resources, the people in this case (our planet will survive way past our existence).
Hence, the theory of economics that encapsulates such objective must not be focused on a manmade rat-race for growth or wealth, but instead be focused on how those economics produce optimal alignment to an ever-evolving equilibrium with nature, for all human beings (regardless of where they live) depend on such equilibrium for renewal. Such a new realization of human excellence requires a new operating-system even large countries must adopt, with new goalposts and new foundational economic principles to guide humanity.
You can be a small country, but (as some countries prove) you should pride yourself regardless of size, growth or wealth needed to propel the quality of the evolving renewal of your nation.
For only the quality of a country’s renewal can build the independent longevity of its sustainability, and as a result forms the excellence, happiness and the pursuit of freedom of its citizens.
