The Limits to Growth is a book based on A Report to The Club of Rome (1972), which predicted population decreases "when the death rate is driven upward by lack of food and health services" based on the following premises:

  • The behavior mode of the system is that of overshoot and collapse.
  • In this run the collapse occurs because of nonrenewable resource depletion.

Keith Suter wrote:

  • Peccei and King were not confident that either the market or technology could function as a way of solving environmental problems. After calling together groups of economists and scientists to discuss problems facing the world, they asked a group of computer experts at MIT in the US to examine what would happen if people continued to consume such a high amount of resources. This study became the basis of the "Limits to Growth" book. [1]
