     Corporate social responsibility (CSR) takes into account increased populations and scarce resources to ensure that global development is sustainable. Three central pillars of economic progress, social justice and environmental protection now form the basis of how businesses interact and support communities...http://www.alstom.com/Sustainability/animated-series-on-csr/

How Corporate Lobbyists Conquered American Democracy

How Corporate Lobbyists Conquered American Democracy | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

The Atlantic, April 20, 2015

- ▶  HOW CORPORATE LOBBYISTS CONQUERED AMERICAN DEMOCRACY. One has to go back to the Gilded Age to find business in such a dominant political position in American politics.

Something is out of balance in Washington. Corporations now spend about $2.6 billion a year on reported lobbying expenditures—more than the $2 billion we spend to fund the House ($1.18 billion) and Senate ($860 million). It’s a gap that has been widening since corporate lobbying began to regularly exceed the combined House-Senate budget in the early 2000s. Today, the biggest companies have upwards of 100 lobbyists representing them, allowing them to be everywhere, all the time. For every dollar spent on lobbying by labor unions and public-interest groups together, large corporations and their associations now spend $34. Of the 100 organizations that spend the most on lobbying, 95 consistently represent business.

How A Sense of Sacred Can Help Sustainable Business and Environment - Restoring Values

How A Sense of Sacred Can Help  Sustainable Business and Environment - Restoring Values | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it



A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security."~ Albert Einstein



Guardian Sustainable Business, January 08, 2013

 -▶ HOW A SENSE OF SACRED CAN HELP SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS - RESTORING VALUES. Sustainability leaders could learn from Buddhist Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, who believes in a deeper human connection with Mother Earth...

 "If nothing is sacred, most of all nature, then we create the potential for the perfect kind of storm, to which it will be virtually impossible to adapt, let alone mitigate." He hits the nail on the head; we are not going to save ourselves and countless species from destruction with innovations in technology and business thinking alone, unless we heal our profound disconnection with Mother Earth. http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/sense-sacred-sustainable-business-buddhist

IS THE IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BASED ON A FALSE CONSENSUS. The term sustainable development rapidly gained wide-scale acceptance, with the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development just one of the many (inter)governmental or top-down bodies that have set up in the past three decades to include environmental goals in planning and policy.. The idea of sustainable development is based on a false consensus. Once this term and its underlying situations are properly deconstructed, Demaria tells IPS, “we discover that sustainable development is still all about development. And that is where the problem lies.”

Zach Owen's curator insight, December 11, 2014 11:27 PM

What information would lead you to believe this is true? Do you believe it is true?

Véronique Calvet's curator insight, May 2, 7:38 AM

"Thich Nhat Hanh suggests that a greater intellectual knowledge of the impact of our destructive behaviour, or of nature's wonders, will not create the change that is necessary and that only a deeper connection to our hearts and a personal insight into the inter-being of everything in the universe, can offer hope to humanity."

Modern slavery will continue if corporations keep passing the buck : The Supply Chain

Modern slavery will continue if corporations keep passing the buck : The Supply Chain | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it


The Guardian, June 27, 2014

▶  MODERN SLAVERY WILL CONTINUE IF CORPORATIONS KEEP PASSING THE BUCK:

It makes good business sense for companies to actively pursue an ethical supply chain. Philanthropy to worthy third parties is not enough.

The Guardian's painstaking investigation into the Thai seafood sector and the US state department's annual Trafficking in Persons Report have offered arresting revelations in recent days. Not only have shrimp supply chains worldwide proved to be tainted by forced labour on Thai vessels and on soil. These reports show how businesses of all kinds are sullied by slavery – yielding $150bn in profit each year, according to the International Labour Organisation.

Many people suppose that most trafficking is for sexual exploitation (as in Thailand's own sex trade). Yet 68% of victims are exploited for labour – like in the violent seafood-processing facility in Samut Sakhon that several young Burmese women in a Thai shelter vividly described to me when I was the US anti-trafficking envoy.

And many executives assume that tracing labour conditions in their supply chains is futile and prohibitively costly. Yet if the Guardian can do it, the business community surely can – and must.

To abolish today's slavery, businesses must actively be part of the solution. Philanthropy to worthy anti-trafficking organisations is not as important as businesses living by the equivalent of the Hippocratic Oath – at least do no harm.

Single companies can act alone – such as the outdoor clothing company Patagonia, which carefully sources the down that goes into their winter vests and jackets... http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jun/27/modern-slavery-corporations-business-sense-ethical-supply-chain

By the time it reaches the international market it can fetch up to $75 a kilo. No longer are coats always combed to release the best-quality cashmere hair, but the animals are sheared, mixing the soft with the coarse.

IS THE IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BASED ON A FALSE CONSENSUS. The term sustainable development rapidly gained wide-scale acceptance, with the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development just one of the many (inter)governmental or top-down bodies that have set up in the past three decades to include environmental goals in planning and policy.. The idea of sustainable development is based on a false consensus. Once this term and its underlying situations are properly deconstructed, Demaria tells IPS, “we discover that sustainable development is still all about development. And that is where the problem lies.”

 ▶  TURNING THE GLOBAL ECONOMY INTO LOCAL CONNECTED COMMUNITIES.  "We no longer know where our food comes from when it ends up on our plate or where the waste goes when we finish a meal," observes Michelle Long, founder and chief executive of Balle .. Repairing the broken relationships wrought by the combination of economic globalization and corporate giantism is essential. And not only for our economy, which she argues will become more resilient and more productive as it becomes more local (ie boasting shorter supply chains, greater local ownership, closer proximity to the environment, higher socially inclusivity and so forth). But the more connected as individuals we are, she maintains, the happier and more fulfilled we'll be as human beings. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/global-economy-connected-communities-local

-▶  LESSONS FROM THE SHARING ECONOMY

Companies everywhere are jumping on the sharing economy trend. From sharing skills to houses to cars, the sharing economy is transforming many industries. Technology has lowered the barriers so that anyone can provide services blurring the line between “personal” and “professional.”

The consumer peer-to-peer rental market alone is worth $26 billion. Private investors are noticing as Airbnb recently received a $10 billion valuation, and startups like Lyft, Poshmark, fitmob and Uber, which received a $17 billion valuation in its last round, are gaining traction while consumers benefit from lower prices, higher quality, and unprecedented convenience. http://techcrunch.com/2014/08/30/critical-lessons-from-the-sharing-economy/


Share The World's Resources, May 30, 2014

-▶  A COLLECTION OF STWR RESOURCES ON THE SHARING ECONOMY. There are both reasons for optimism as well as caution about the current development of the sharing economy. On the one hand, its gradual political evolution suggests that the ethic of sharing is set to become increasingly essential and popular in the years ahead, especially in the wake of continuing economic crises and the collapsing model of debt-fuelled over-consumption. 

     On the other hand, however, there are already signs that the sharing economy is being co-opted by purely commercial interests and stripped of its transformative potential as an answer to gross inequality, ecological destruction, the lack of true democracy, and almost every other progressive cause. 

     For this reason, STWR has published various resources over recent months and years that outline how authentic forms of sharing relate to the political and economic challenges of the 21st century... http://www.sharing.org/information-centre/articles/collection-stwr-resources-sharing-economy?dm_i=M4P,2IZXQ,E854AO,97N3S,1

The Guardian, June 1, 2014
THE OPEN SOURCE REVOLUTION IS COMING AND IT WILL CONQUER THE 1%  Today's capitalism is inherently predatory and destructive: "Over the course of the last centuries, the commons was fenced, and everything from agriculture to water was commoditised without regard to the true cost in non-renewable resources. Human beings, who had spent centuries evolving away from slavery, were re-commoditised by the Industrial Era."

Open source everything, in this context, offers us the chance to build on what we've learned through industrialisation, to learn from our mistakes, and catalyse the re-opening of the commons, in the process breaking the grip of defunct power structures and enabling the possibility of prosperity for all.

"Sharing, not secrecy, is the means by which we realise such a lofty destiny as well as create infinite wealth. The wealth of networks, the wealth of knowledge, revolutionary wealth - all can create a nonzero win-win Earth that works for one hundred percent of humanity. This is the 'utopia' that Buckminster Fuller foresaw, now within our reach."

However for the past 100 years we've made a tremendous impact with our footprint due to the growth of world population and the industrialization of our everyday life.

A DREAM FORECLOSED:  WALL STREET FORECLOSURE BUYBACKS AT FIRESALE PRICES. As President Obama touts the "housing recovery," journalist Laura Gottesdiener examines the devastating legacy of the foreclosure crisis and how much of the so-called recovery is a result of large private equity firms buying up hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes. More than 10 million people across the country have been evicted from their homes in the last six years. Her new book, "A Dream Foreclosed: Black America and the Fight for a Place to Call Home," focuses on four families who have pushed back against foreclosures. "The banks exploited a larger historical trajectory of discrimination in lending and in housing that has existed since the beginning of this country. The banks intentionally went into communities that had been red-lined, which meant that the Federal Housing Administration had made it a policy to not lend and not to guarantee any loans in minority neighborhoods all throughout most of the 20th century that didn’t supposedly end until well into the 1960s," Gottesdiener says. "And they exploited that historical reality and pushed the worst of the worst loans in these communities that everyone knew were unpayable debts — that Wall Street knew." ... http://www.democracynow.org/2013/8/6/a_dream_foreclosed_as_obama_touts

First came a historic national crash in home prices, then a surprisingly sharp jolt off the bottom.

Some markets saw double-digit annual price appreciation. Some analysts started to float the word “bubble,” again... http://nbr.com/2014/10/23/housing-is-waking-up-to-a-new-hangover/

WALL STREET NOW LARGEST OWNER OF SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL HOMES You may not have heard of the Blackstone Group, but it’s the largest private equity firm in the world. And now it’s become the largest owner of single-family rental homes in the country. Over the last few years, Blackstone and other Wall Street firms have been quietly grabbing up huge swaths of the rental housing market, purchasing more than 200,000 cheap homes, hoping to turn a profit. At one auction in Atlanta, Blackstone swept up 1,400 houses in a single day.   

And as private equity firms gobble up huge swaths of the housing market, they are partnering with big banks to bundle the mortgages on these rental homes into a new financial product known as "rental-backed securities," reminiscent of the "mortgage-backed securities" that helped cause the last financial crisis. http://www.democracynow.org/2014/4/10/wall_streets_land_grab_firms_amass

RISING RENTS - COMMUNITY/SOCIETY  IMPACTS

                                    ==========================


 TripleCrisis, March 19, 2014

▶RENT IN A WARMING WORLD. Rent isn’t just the monthly check that tenants write to landlords. Economists use the term “rent seeking” to mean “using political and economic power to get a larger share of the national pie, rather than to grow the national pie,” in the words of Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, who maintains that such dysfunctional activity has metastasized in the United States alongside deepening inequality.
When rent inspires investment in useful things like housing, it’s productive. The economic pie grows, and the people who pay rent get something in return. When rent leads to investment in unproductive activities, like lobbying to capture wealth without creating it, it’s parasitic. Those who pay get nothing in return. Two other types of rent originate in nature rather than in human investment. Extractive rent and Protective Rent.... http://triplecrisis.com/rent-in-a-warming-world/

The Coalition for the Homeless released its 2014 State of the Homeless report today documenting new record levels of homelessness reached in Mayor Bloomberg’s final year in office, with more than 53,000 New Yorkers and 22,000 children sleeping in shelters each night by the end of 2013.  The report also outlines concrete, cost-effective steps the new Administration can take to begin moving families out of the shelter system and prevent New Yorkers from becoming homeless in the first place. http://www.coalitionforthehomeless.org/blog/entry/state-of-the-homeless-2014/

Naked Capitalism, November 07, 2014
AFTER MESSING UP THE HOUSING MARKET, THE "SMART MONEY" BAILS OUT. – smart because it has access to the Fed’s free moolah – is abandoning the housing market.

Wall Street money entered the housing market gingerly in 2010 and 2011, then piled helter-skelter into select metro areas over the next two years, grabbing vacant single-family homes out of foreclosure with the goal of first renting them out, then selling to yield-desperate investors and unsuspecting mutual-fund holders their latest toxic concoction: rent-backed structured securities that are even worse than the mortgage-backed structured securities that helped take down the financial system only a few years ago.

It worked. Each wave of buying ratcheted up prices via the multiplier effect, not only in the neighborhood but beyond. It created instant and juicy paper gains on all prior purchases. In this way, the same companies, now mega-landlords, were able to push up the value of their own holdings with new waves of purchases. It was a wonderful game while it lasted. And it was funded with nearly free money the Fed graciously made available to the largest players. Housing Bubble 2 came into full bloom.

▶  ARE WOMEN LEADING THE SOCIAL ENTERPRISE REVOLUTION?

Today, according to the according to The Independent, “Women are almost twice as likely to reach the top ranks in social enterprises as they are in mainstream businesses,” and “more than 90 percent of companies that focus on tackling social problems have at least one woman on their leadership team.” To put it even more bluntly, as former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said in her address at the 2012 Social Enterprise World Forum in Rio de Janeiro, it seems that “women are natural social entrepreneurs.”..http://www.forbes.com/sites/yec/2013/10/17/can-women-lead-the-social-enterprise-revolution/

NAMIBIA'S QUIET "ZEBRA SYSTEM" GENDER EQUITY REVOLUTION: Namibia's Gender Equity Revolution aims for 50 percent representation of Women in leadership positions.  A quiet gender revolution the like of which has been unseen in Southern Africa and perhaps anywhere in the world, is now firmly underway in Namibia. The ruling party, SWAPO has not only committed to filling half of its seats in parliament with women but also committed to what they call a ‘Zebra system’ whereby if a Minister is a woman then the Deputy Minister will be a man and vice versa. Even more ambitiously, the implication is that the roles will be switched in successive elections... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/92420

Women make up half the world's population, but don't nearly share half of the world's wealth, well-being and opportunity. Two-thirds of the world poor are women, disproportionally exposing women to precarious living conditions, disease and unmitigated natural disasters. The media, meanwhile, remains a male-dominated sector in much of the world, contributing to women's voices lacking a crucial amplifier to put their concerns on political agendas and unleash the development potential of their ingenuity. Rather than then stereotypical victims of local and global forces, women are also organizer, innovators, conservators and community builders. These are some of their stories. http://www.ipsnews.net/news/gender/

 Peter Buffett, son of billionaire investor Warren on the conflict between capitalism and humanism. "THE CONFLICT BETWEEN CAPITALISM AND HUMANISM... YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH"

 

 New York Times, July 26, 2013 - by Peter Buffet

-▶ THE CHARITABLE-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX - PETER BUFFET

 As more lives are destroyed by the system that creates vast amounts of wealth for the few, the more heroic it sounds to “give back.”

Peter Buffett, son of billionaire invester Warren, argues that philanthropy needs to do a better job of listening. He says that the structure of philanthropy is such that nothing seems to get better, but rather locks existing problems into place.

"Poverty, hunger, the environment, education, health - all those things are symptoms of a larger problem of nobody really wanting to get in there and blow some things up," Buffett says... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/27/opinion/the-charitable-industrial-complex.html?_r=1&

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, December 1, 2013 6:43 PM

When all is said and done about the pros and cons of philanthropy today, we are rely on it more and more. As our government continues to replace democracy with Casino Capitalism, it is leaving the 99% behind in this high stakes poker game being played by the 1%. This has also increased the crevase between wealth and the poverty by creating a new socio-economic class, The Middle Class Poor.

 - ▶ LIFE FINDS A WAY:  THE SURPRISING BIODIVERSITY OF CITIES. 

Public perception of wildlife tends to be tied to natural habitats such as forests, ocean and other wild settings. However, cities can provide habitat for many animals and plants. In the largest global assessment of urban biodiversity to date, published in Proceedings of the Royal Society, researchers examined the biodiversity of urban areas and found that cities are home to a surprising number of species. The study underlines the conservation importance of preserving and creating green spaces when it comes to urban planning.

Why are green developments different? The goals are conservation while providing a unique living experience. Biodiversity, however, often is lower on the totem pole of priorities.

For the first time in our history, more people live in urban vs. rural areas and humans continue to move into cities. Cities have huge impacts on our natural resources. Urban dwellers consume vast amounts of energy, produce waste, and alter landscapes to the point where native plant and animal populations decline precipitously. As cities grow, people have pondered -- can we develop land without destroying our natural heritage?.. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mark-hostetler/the-green-leap-can-we-con_b_1314981.html

The Circular Economy: Rethinking 'Progress' - A new way of thinking and doing business

Temple Group Blog, August 20, 2014

-▶ SAILING TOWARDS A CIRCULAR ECONOMY 

Since the industrial revolution, human activities haven’t usually followed cycles. Instead, they have been based on extraction, followed by manufacturing, use and disposal: the ‘take – make – use – discard’ linear process. Natural systems can cope with this up to a point without being unduly perturbed. Unfortunately, with so many people driving the use of so many resources and the production of so much waste, we have now affected many natural cycles and the consequences are far reaching. It is true that over the last 25 years or so, there has been a trend towards recycling and reuse, although this was often driven initially by the need to reduce waste going to landfill. The circular economy approach takes this a lot further. By ignoring natural cycles rather than working with them, we are warming the planet, reducing biodiversity and could threaten the ability of humans to have a high quality of life. In case you think this is just the view of someone with a professional environmental interest, you might want to take a look at what the MoD strategic outlook up to 2045. has to say about the environment.

-▶ CIRCULAR ECONOMY IS A NEW WAY OF DOING BUSINESS

Look closely at the challenges facing our world and the circular economy makes business sense. Companies are turning to a new model of sustainable business in an effort to reduce their dependence on finite resources...

The sense that our planet is running out of the minerals, metals and organic matter required to sustain its rising human population has helped to fashion a new concept for our times: the circular economy. At its core is the argument that the old, linear model of conducting business – extraction, consumption and waste – is past its sell-by date...http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/circular-economy-new-way-doing-business

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, September 28, 2013 4:26 PM

Zero Footprint requires a circular economy, where all outputs must be accounted for as inputs elsewhere in the economy, where the entire lifecycle of all products is factored in, where 100% of waste becomes raw resources, powered by 100% renewable energy.

-▶ A YOUNG GENERATION SEES GREENER PASTURES IN AGRICULTURE. It's a generation that has grown up in the digital age, but embraced some very old-school things: the farmers market, craft beer, artisan cheese. "Living in the city, you commute by subway, you buy your food at the supermarket, you work in a cubicle all day...You're not intimately tied to anything." Gelvosa and Gerritsen are part of a generation for whom global warming has been hanging overhead like the sword of Damocles. In fact, all the young farmers interviewed for this story mentioned environmental health and climate change as factors in choosing a life on the land.

 9 January, 2013 - The Guardian Environment - Tony Juniper:

 -▶  THE ECONOMY AND NATURE

Nature is not a drag on growth – its protection is an unavoidable prerequisite for sustaining economic development.

The value of the carbon capture services which could be gained through halving the deforestation rate by 2030 is around $3.7 trillion

One of the greatest misconceptions of our time is the idea that there is somehow a choice between economic development and sustaining nature. ...environmental goals need to be scaled back to promote more growth. The reality we inhabit is somewhat different, however. One hundred per cent of economic activity is dependent on the services and benefits provided by nature... http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/blog/2013/jan/09/economy-nature

Guardian, April 08, 2014

THE BIOSPHERE:  NATURE IS ALL WE HAVE. Imagine an economic community in which nobody could list the stakeholders or identify those about to default. Or try to set a value on a reference library that has catalogued only a fraction of its archive, and some of that wrongly. Think of a reserve bank with most of its ledgers missing. Humankind is in that kind of predicament: it depends almost entirely on natural capital to generate food and fibre, building materials, fuel and pharmaceuticals, to pollinate crops, filter drinking water, recycle waste and maintain the oxygen supply. Living things underwrite all national economies: money, in effect, really does grow on trees.

Taxonomists identify around 18,000 new species each year, but in the same 12 months a greater number may slip into oblivion, as humans raze forests, pave or plough grasslands, bulldoze hillsides, drain swamps and dredge estuaries.Each extinction represents an asset lost or an opportunity squandered. Yet the human impact on the planetary ecosystem is now so palpable that geologists have proposed a new chronological era, the anthropocene, and biologists already call this "the sixth great extinction".

It would almost certainly open the floodgates to the final wave of privatization of public services, including the provision of healthcare, education and water. Meanwhile, already privatized companies would be prevented from a re-transfer to the public sector by a so-called barring “ratchet clause” – even if the privatization failed. http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2014/12/don-quijones-trade-services-agreement-lets-big-brother-go-global.html

The TPP is a Trojan horse, branded as a "free trade" agreement, but having nothing to do with fair and equitable treatment. In reality, it is precisely "a wish list of the 1% - a worldwide corporate power". [8] "Only 5 of its 29 chapters cover traditional trade matters, like tariffs or quotas." [9] "The other chapters enshrine new rights and privileges for major corporations while weakening the power of nation states to oppose them." [10] http://atimes.com/atimes/Japan/JAP-02-270913.html

Corporate agri-businesses like U.S.-based Dole, Del Monte, Monsanto, along with international and Philippine mines, are polluting waterways and destroying the surrounding farms.

PESTICIDE-LADEN POT: THE DANGERS OF LURKING CONTAMINANTS AND PESTICIDES WITH COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS. Humboldt State University, Jeffrey Raber said a recent study he conducted found that up to 70 percent of the pesticides found on a marijuana bud can transfer to the smoke being inhaled.."It's much like injecting it directly into your blood stream.”...

...especially in the medical patient context,” Raber said. “These are people that are immunocompromised, they're undergoing chemotherapy, they're very sick with antibacterial loads. We can't be subjecting them to more of these types of potentially harmful contaminants when they're looking to this as a medicine source.”  http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_24628828/what-are-you-smoking-study-finds-pesticides-transfer

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, March 19, 2014 8:29 PM

"Wonder Why Marijuana Laws Are Passing So Quickly Across the USA and the World. It's Not For Your Health. And It's Not About the Drug Wars. It's about the repeat of ending "prohibition" and restructuring wealth. Big politics and "Legal" Money is involved here to capture, control and profit from this new market. The Cartels and Multi-National Corporations Have Control of a global agricultural Industry, already in place: from owning the land, to growing the crops, patenting new genetically engineered seeds, owning the pesticides and marketing .. and we're right back to toxic smoking and ill-health. Nothing new here."

Christina Bryant's curator insight, April 7, 2014 5:03 AM

This article speaks about how Colorado, particularly Denver, believes that there will be a marijuana shortage now that marijuana has been legalized. This article goes into depth about how there will be a shortage in the short run, but eventually the supply and demand should come to an equilibrium.

▶  MULTI-NATIONAL FAST FOOD COMPANIES:  MORE THAN HALF OF U.S. FAST FOOD WORKERS ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE, REPORT SAYS

More than half of families of fast food workers receive some sort of public assistance, costing the nation $7 billion a year, according to a new report distributed by a group that has been pushing for union representation and higher wages for fast food workers...

The report calculates that about $3.9 billion a year is spent on Medicaid and children’s healthcare for fast food workers and their families. Families also receive $1.04 billion in food stamp benefits and $1.91 billion from the federal government through the earned income tax credit. Even those workers who are on a 40-hour-a-week schedule receive benefits; more than half of those families are enrolled in public assistance programs, the report says.... http://www.latimes.com/business/money/la-fi-mo-fast-food-minimum-wage-20131014,0,1971900.story

▶  LOW WAGES AT McDONALD'S, BURGER KING COST TAXPAYERS BILLIONS. New research shows more than half of low-wage workers at fast-food restaurants rely on public assistance to survive – a rate double that of the overall workforce. According to researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, low wages in the fast-food industry cost American taxpayers nearly $7 billion every year – that’s more than the entire annual budget of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A companion report by the National Employment Law Project found McDonald’s alone costs Americans $1.2 billion annually by paying its workers insufficient wages. Last year the top 10 largest fast-food companies alone made more than $7.4 billion in profits.http://www.democracynow.org/2013/10/18/super_sizing_welfare_costs_low_wages

Center for American Progress, December 22, 2014
-▶ FOSSIL-FUEL INDUSTRY SPENT BIG TO SET ANTI-ENVIRONMENT AGENDA FOR THE 2015 U.S. CONGRESS : A legislative rider that was quietly attached to a major defense funding bill earlier this month marked a watershed change in the political fortunes of the coal, oil, and gas industries and their return to power in Washington, D.C. The rider—which turns the Bull Mountains in Montana over to a Koch-connected, Houston-based company to be strip mined for coal—is the fossil-fuel industry’s first major payoff from a three-quarters-of-a-billion-dollar investment to secure Republican control of Congress and to set the stage for a pro-coal, pro-drilling, and anti-environment agenda in 2015

Our politicians are hung up on keeping the growth curve rising. But does GDP really tell us all we need to know about a country's wealth and well-being? In this new RSA Short, Kate Raworth makes a powerful argument to look beyond economic growth alone for a true measure of prosperity and progress.
 Kate Raworth is a renegade economist teaching at Oxford University, and is focused on the rewriting of economics to make it a fit tool for addressing the 21st century's social and ecological challenges. She blogs on Doughnut Economics at http://www.kateraworth.com and tweets @KateRaworth

IS THE IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BASED ON A FALSE CONSENSUS. The idea of sustainable development is based on a false consensus.

And that is where the problem lies.” http://www.ipsnews.net/2014/11/down-with-sustainable-development-long-live-convivial-degrowth/

Eli Levine's curator insight, April 29, 2014 9:26 AM

Indeed, it's not enough to call the dollar value of what you're people are buying and selling "wealth".

 

Where are the environmental factors that will cost us money due to the loss of economic activity (thanks to weather and climatic difficulties)?  Where are the markers for well being and other aspects of human happiness?

 

Capitalism is going to kill itself off, regardless of what anyone does to try to save it in its present form.  The death has already happened, just as the roots of death are in anything that we may develop.  Either things will be eclipsed by better things, or else, they'll collapse into worse things that we'll have to dig our way out of.

 

I'd rather have things go the former way, rather than the latter.  Unfortunately, I don't have much of a say about how we achieve that.

 

So, we're stuck, thanks to the stuck brains of our leadership cadre.

 

Enjoy!

 

Think about it.

While some details of the fourth draft are still under discussion, it has been agreed that the principle of prioritising the environment above the economy will be enshrined in law, according to scholars who have been involved in the process.
