Is Sustainable Development Sustainability or Homeostasis?

This is important to understand as it defines the problem.  

For me sustainability is where need=want, albeit needs and wants that do not denude natural systems but maintain homeostasis. 

We have assumptions that the business design is sustainable, my question is – is it true?

Have we considered changing business in an image that is based on universal values rather than profit maximisation?  Do you think infinite economic growth is sustainable? Does greed perpetuate self interest?  Does self interest perpetuate greed? 

What of balance with the whole in mind, that is,  holistic perspectives?

Is sustainability the right word? What of holistic growth?

Here is another perspective.

This exploration is in the public interest.
