This isn't sustainable. We are in a finite system so infinite growth is a dream.

Businesses have to realize that you can make a profit without having to grow every quarter. There will be fewer people to sell to so the numbers sold will have to be reduced. This is the downside of the companies have only a duty to give as much money to stock holders as possible.
