SYSTEM DYSFUNCTION

CONCENTRATION OF ECONOMIC POWER
This is an important characteristic of profit dominated economics while often bringing damage to society and the environment

CONFLICT

CORRUPTION
Corruption is under the radar ... not well researched ... and very profitable. It is practiced throughout the global socio-enviro-economic system and the risk / reward ratio is extremely hith in large part because there are too many people in high places that benefit from these behaviors.

PRODUCTIVITY
The increase in knowledge over the past 100 years is amazing, and has enabled a massive increase in productivity. This productivity has been used almost exclusively to enable the ownere of financial capital to increase their wealth, and rather less for working people to increase their income and for economic activity to have less impact on resource depletion, environmental degradation and loss of eco-system service capacity.
Open list0300-Productivity

UNEMPLOYMENT AND UNDEREMPLOYMENT
An existential risk brought about by improvement in productivity on the one hand, and a system of metrics and reward that only values profit and money wealth accumulation.
Open list0300-Jobs



EXISTENTIAL RISKS

RISK
The public has very little understanding of risk, and society has not been well served by the insurance industry, academics and policy makers. There is a widespread view that future risk can be discounted in the same way that future profits are discounted in calculating present value. This is dangerous. There is also the view that the most important risk for a company is simply the possibility that profits will reduced, but little appreciation that broader systemic risks to society and the environment have importance.
