This is a possible description towards approaching an economy in a 'full world'.


Re-Thinking Progress The Circular Economy


Economics in a Full World

Economics in a Full World by Herman E Daly Discusses Limitless Human Consumption in a Limited Environment and its Future Economic Effect

Economics in a Full World by Herman E Daly Discusses Limitless Human Consumption in a Limited Environment and its Future Effect on the Economy and Vice Versa. Developing an economy that can be sustained within the finite biosphere requires new ways of thinking. The global economy is now so large that society can no longer safely pretend it operates within a limitless ecosystem. Developing an economy that can be sustained within the finite biosphere requires new ways of thinking.

Herman E. Daly discusses how humankind's consumption of resources is somewhat akin to sand flowing through an hourglass that cannot be flipped over. We have a virtually unlimited supply of energy from the sun, but we cannot control the rate of its input. In contrast, we have a finite supply of fossil fuels and minerals, but we can increase or decrease our consumption rate. If we use those resources at a high rate, we in essence borrow from the supply rightly belonging to future generations and accumulate more wastes in the environment. Such activity is not sustainable in the long run.
