That's the Washington consensus, yes.

FWIW, lack of growth seems pretty shitty.

The view of the Global Financial Crisis from my lack of growth mound is delicious.

Thanks for the link. In much the same vein, with lots more data sets, have a look at the Google Public Data Explorer.

Constant growth is unsustainable. It is myopic, and fails to recognize that humanity is a bounded system. That Washington consensus is bizarrely wrong. Sustainability, along with a definition of what values are to be sustained, is required.
