Cobb-Douglas, a formula and a principle with limits

The drivers of most economic planning, laborinfo-icon, capital and their productivity, are at the core of the concept described by the Cobb-Douglas production function. Unfortunately, this "unlimited" view has hard limits in energy and resource availability that didn't matter during the 20th century.


Cobb-Douglas productivity function

Coming Soon: Almost all economic forecasting is implicitly or explicitly based on the Cobb-Douglas production function, seeing laborinfo-icon capital and their productivity as the core drivers of economic output: We further explain the components of Cobb-Douglas and how they drive all our planning (including the intent of growing population size), and tie them back to their natural resource limits.
