Does economics have to grow and expand? I think it only does in 2 situations. The current corporate model, which demands increasing profits, and when
population grows. And when population grows there is an increased demand and labor pool which means it should grow to meet its own needs.
The problem is the financialized corporatist model, which demands growth and expansion because they keep extracting more of the profit that would
otherwise be used to meet the needs of the population, whether it be growing, stagnant, or contracting.
It’s the rentiers, the exploiters, those who live off other people’s work, that force an economy to have to grow. The more they extract, the more
the income disparity, then the more the economy must grow or it faces contraction, debt deflation, and collapse. Collapse being the extractors take
all the money and run, while the workers either change the system and start again, or live under abject poverty for the foreseeable future.
