PEOPLE
THEIR CONTRIBUTION and THEIR COST OF LIVING

Value Credit ... the Contribution of People
Parenting
Working
Family
Community Research ElderCare
  • People Contribute and Add to Social and Economic Capital
  • People only have a limited amount of time in their lives ...
  • What they do with this time is what matters
  • Much of what matters is not measured
  • Because there is little or no pay, does not mean it does not have value.

Value Debit ... the Cost of Being Alive

Education
  • Costs of Living are a net True Cost to Economic Capital
  • Costs of Living are strongly correlated with environmental degradation ... reduce Natural Capital.
  • Patterns of consumption really matter ... meat has very high True Cost.
  • More and more GDP growth may be profitable but it is dangerously unsustainable

NATURE
HUGE CONTRIBUTION and UNSUSTAINABLE DEGRADATION
.
Value Credit ... the Contributions of Nature
LAND
WATER
AIR
RESOURCES
BIODIVERSITY
ECOSYSTEMS
  • Everything depends on natural systems ... this is the origin of ALL value add
  • Natural Systems are incredibly complex, massive in scale, efficient and usually slow.
  • When normal equilibriums are disturbed, there can be catasrophic dysruption.
  • Modern industrial processes are disturbing natural systems on a massive scale which is likely to be catastrophic.

ECOSYSTEMS
  • Industrial production, agriculture and consumption by people are combining to deplete and degrade Natural Resources.
  • Economic performance metrics have excluded and the depletion and degradation of the Environment since the beginning of the industrial era.
  • People who have benefited financially have never been held to account regarding Natural Capital costs
  • To improve quality of life for people, nature has been exploited, depleted and degraded, but this is NOT sustainable.


ECONOMY
THE SYSTEM OPTIMIZES TO MAXIMIZE INCREASE IN ECONOMIC CAPITAL
.
  • Almost the whole of global GDP flows through corporate business organizations
  • They are responsible for the deployment of technological innovations to improve productivity
  • They optimize their decisions to maximize profits and benefit for stockholders.
  • To a great extent, they ignore social impact and environmental impact and push back against regulation ... even where there are critical needs
  • Industrial production, agriculture and consumption by people are combining to deplete and degrade Natural Resources.
  • Economic performance metrics have excluded and the depletion and degradation of the Environment since the beginning of the industrial era.
  • People who have benefited financially have never been held to account regarding Natural Capital costs
  • To improve quality of life for people, nature has been exploited, depleted and degraded, but this is NOT sustainable.
