More > to measure welfare seriously contradict the sustainable development discourse. After 50 years, a critically inefficient measure of welfare is still in use, leading to erroneous policies, and, in turn, posing increasing social, economic, and environmental costs.

The ISEW model for Puerto Rico provides a starting point for the development of new economic, social, and environmental strategies. Likewise, it provides the foundation for evaluating if society is moving in the right direction and a tool for measuring true sustainable development; development that embrace and integrate socio-economic aspects with environmental issues.< Less

In this report, we use a model of the UK’s and Scotland’s long-run public finances to project levels of public revenues and spending over the next 50 years, taking into account projected... More > changes in the size and demographic structure of the population. We examine: • the long-run fiscal pressures that an independent Scotland may face; • how these would differ from those facing the UK; • the size of the fiscal consolidation that may be required to put Scotland’s public finances on a sustainable path. An independent Scottish government might not need to implement such a fiscal consolidation immediately, but these long-run fiscal pressures should form an important part of the backdrop to any discussions about potential restructuring of Scottish taxation and public spending in the event of independence.< Less

Entropy Happens: How the denial of a basic law of physics is killing our chances for economic and environmental sustainability By John Hoaglund

Energy, the ability to perform work, is money. The laws of energy “[control], the rise and fall of political systems, the freedom or bondage of nations, the movements of commerce and industry,... More > the origins of wealth and poverty, and the general physical welfare of the race." Energy also governs life and ecosystems. It is conserved, but moves from available to unavailable.

Entropy change happens. Entropy has never been fully accounted in models of economic or environmental sustainability, neglect made possible by the availability of energy, solar energy for a historically small population, and now fossil fuels for a large population. Peak-oil and population makes solving the energy crisis imperative, but it will not be solved without recognizing the intrinsic energy value of our ecosystems.< Less
