Prophecy de Novo: The Nearly Self-Fulfilling Doomsday Forecast
By Craig S. Marxsen
This article appeared in the Winter 2003 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

The environmentalist manifesto The Limits to Growth (1972) predicted that a series of ecological catastrophes would soon bring economic collapse. The book was wrong about environmental apocalypse, but it did help create a favorable climate for regulations that have seriously hampered economic growth.
