The effects of the Circular Economy (CE) are positive and negative. However, the beneficial aspects are widely considered. The CE creates a link between economic growth and limited resources by cuts waste from the production system. Therefore, CE is associated with increased prosperity, the ecological added value from products and processes with reduced emissions. There are doubts related to the jobs generated by the CE, costs of other resources usage, and consumption reduction or maximization of existing products. The adopted methods in this paper are an inductive inference method supported by a case study. The study presents examples of spectacular problems coming from the transformation towards CE.
