We consider discrete-time homogeneous systems under arbitrary switching and study their growth rate, the analogue of joint spectral radius for switched linear systems. We show that a system is asymptotically stable if and only if its growth rate is less than unity. We also provide an approximation algorithm to compute growth rate with arbitrary accuracy.
