The Limits to Growth LTG is a report [1] on the computer simulation of exponential economic and population growth with a finite supply of resources. The Thirty Year Update there are several pages explaining that new resources are found over time and that the current reserves therefore change but that ultimately resources are finite.

The study used the World3 computer model to simulate the consequence of interactions between the earth and human systems. MeadowsDennis L.
