economic growth is only reason for the growth of a country
Debate Rounds (3)
we also need to support the growth of traditional arts , as now arts are not given the importance they deserve , the various art forms are neglected as if they never existed .Preserving traditions and traditional growth is important because every region is known for its traditions . Imagine someone asking you `what are the special things or traditions of your region ?` you`ll answer ` I have IT industries , and skyscrapers` and if he`ll ask you about traditions you will have no answer becasue traditions were never preserved and they died and all you have is internet and big structures of concrete steel iron and glass but what else? If you have no traditions you will not have a proper way of life because traditions give us a way to live life . I think archeological growth is also important which means preserving of monuments ,if we wiil not preserve our monuments ,which 7 wonders of the world we will have ? The burj khalifa , empire state building ,burj al arab ,taipei 101, OR what?
that is why I think economic growth is not the only reason for the development of a country
I think you're definition of the word 'economy' has been greatly misconstrued. Every sector of industy ties in with the economy and if the economy isn't thriving, then neither will any apsect of the country. You've essentially shot yourself on the foot, because the sectors you've mentioned that you believe should be focussed on in alternation to the economy, are in fact, branches of the economy. The creative industries and the environmental sector are part of the economy!
For example, the creative industries (arts, television, music, radio etc.) are all funded by the government or private companies, and the amount of funding is subsequently based on how well the economy is doing. You state that if we just focussed on the economy then then progression in the green sector would decline - this is wrong. Economic growth is one of the most crucial tacklers of environmental issues, such as climate change. Bjorn Lomborg, Director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center and adjunct professor at Copenhagen Business School, stated that the only way the world is going to progress in terms of green energy is through further investment, and that with a stronger economy, emissions could easily be reduced (1). This is evidence from one of the world's top economists that the only way to improve certain parts of the industry, is through economic growth.
The richer a country, the better the industries.
