[ap-calculus] relative rates of growth

Hi all,

Just curious - are there other "practical" uses of comparing rates of growth of functions apart from comparing algorithms in computer science?  I guess I could picture perhaps something in economics or perhaps demographics, but do any of you have concrete examples?

Thanks,
Bill
