That’s like a human metastatic cancer trying to support the homeostasis of a body that it is in the process of killing. Eventually the negative externalities cause a paraneoplastic syndrome that cannot be reversed. That is, any effort to reverse the failing homeostasis of the body (ecosystem) by neoplastic metabolic activity only results in an accelerated deterioration and death. The cancer is widely disseminated, stage IV and apparently unstoppable as most every human on the planet strives to convert the natural world into a fixed stock of wealth and/or ephemeral experience of pleasure. Any ecosystem radiation or chemotherapy would likely be ineffective at this point as each cell (business) competes for maximal growth and has metastasized into all tissues of the ecosystem.
