Finally, a variety of production externalities may operate at the industry, regional, or economy-wide level that affect incentives influencing the location of factors (agglomeration economies) as well as their qualities (social externalities). The growth of labour or capital, then, is potentially dependent on input prices, the factor mix, and the presence of particular externalities.
Economic growth is only beneficial to the society as long as the marginal benefit of further quantitative development is greater than marginal cost. Beyond this point further development of the ecosphere is counter productive and ecologically unsustainable, in which case the economic activity should be stopped at this optimum level.

We should realize that Japan has perhaps reached that desirable state of balance, which should be what every country should aspire to (Subramanian, 2008).
