Achieving an environmentally healthy and more equitable society requires a radical re-thinking of our guiding economic ideas. The real ecological and social costs of technologies and goods and services must be weighed and perverse incentives to pollute removed. Corporations must be forced to be good citizens and punished severely if they refuse, and the creativity of genuinely socially responsible entrepreneurs and businesses of all stripes encouraged and rewarded.
Greg Watson, Christine Nobiss, Ted Howard and brandon king discuss how we can transition out of exploitative, traditional economic models in a way that empowers all through social and environmental sustainability.
