« In economics, dematerialization refers to the absolute or
relative reduction in the quantity of materials required to serve
economic functions in society. In common terms,
dematerialization means doing more with less.

Dematerialization is the counterargument to the idea that
economics is only about 'more is better.' The idea that more is
better, a common activist argument which likens economic logic
to the logic of a cancer cell, ignores the differences between
inputs and outputs, and it ignores the ratio of inputs to outputs. »
