SOCIO-ENVIRO-ECONOMIC SYSTEM
PROGRESS AND PERFORMANCE

ENVIRONMENT / NATURAL CAPITAL
The financial economy has grown very rapidly ... but at the expense of the environment and natural systems.

OVERVIEW
The modern socio-enviro-economic system is facing an existential crisis that is being ignored. The dominant metrics are all about economic growth (as in the GDP measure), corporate profits and stock market prices (that is financial wealth). There are all sorts of metrics that show that natural capital has been depleted in a very serious way over the past century (or two or three) but these metrics are not part of mainstream decision making at any level.
In order for the system to be optimized with ALL the population improving their quality of life, there will need to be major changes in the way measurement is done and reward allocated.Continuation of what has been done for the past many decades is not sustainable. Major proactive efforts are going to be needed in order to reverse the damage already done.
