Limits to Growth

#

In a complex system, engines of growth (positive feedback loops) will often generate secondary effects that will slow down the engine.

In the The Fifth Discipline, Peter Senge explains that the leverage lies in the balancing loop because the more you push, the more this balancing loop will push back. Therefore, it is much more efficient to focus on removing the factors that limit growth rather than pushing growth.
