See w:productivism. Productivism is the belief that "more production is necessarily good." It is often associated with the w:USSR and especially w:Stalinism. It is also reflected in the w:GDP bias in measures of w:economic growth.
Those who claim uneconomic growth claim that GDP productivism suffers from the w:broken window fallacy which assumes that making up for harms is as good as less production that makes up for much less harm. w:Net Domestic Product is sometimes proposed as a cure for productivism. See also its parallel consumerism.
