New report: Restoring growth through green investments

"It is argued in this policy brief that policies to encourage low-carbon investment offer broad and effective opportunities to restore confidence and to leverage additional, rather than displaced, investment. These policies would generate income for investors and would have credibility in the long term because they address growing externalities and market failures, while tapping into a fast-growing global market for resourceefficient activities."

 

Interesting new report from the Grantham Institute at the London School of Economics.

"Once it becomes clear that further GDP growth will be ever more difficult to achieve, national leaders will desperately need ways to make life tolerable for their increasingly restive constituents. It’s plain that environmental, psychological, and social well-being must be the new goal, and we can thank the government of Bhutan for realizing this and blazing a trail that others may follow."

 

Good resumee by Richard Heinberg of the UN's special conference on wellbeing and the need to define a new economic paradigm.
