Abstract

Growth for growth's sake, as is commonly promoted by Chamber of Commerce groups, is not a universal good~ With growth also comes more autos to emit exhaust, more industrial vats to be dumped, more toilets to flush, more over-crowding of public facilities, and more people to deface the countryside, all exacting a toll from our environmental quality. Industrial growth in Iowa should be geared to favor the non-polluting type of industry and to provide work needed by our own citizens without having to import out-of-state labor. Small, non-polluting industries in small towns would seem ·a goal that would favor retention of our environmental quality.
