ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the Department of Treasury's $800 billion rescue package for the financial market in the U.S. He stresses that the initiative is a short-term and a regressive solution. He points out that any alternative to economic growth remains unthinkable. He cites the arithmetic of relentless consumption of American ecologists Paul Ehrlich and John Holdren. A computation regarding the effect of global population to the climate change is presented.
