Taking nature into account : a report to the Club of Rome : toward a sustainable national income

Wouter van Dieren, editor

Indicators used to direct ecomonic policy are based on a number of factors - none of which, however, acknowledge the degradation of natural resources. Continued deterioration of the environment is leading us closer to crisis, while policymakers and the public base their decisions on dangerously incomplete information. In Taking Nature into Account, a number of the world's leading experts state the ethical, historical, economic, and ecological arguments for including environmental factors when measuring fiscal health. Initiated by the Club of Rome (an international group of influential businesspeople, statesmen, and scientists), and written in cooperation with the World Wide Fund for Nature, the report reviews existing methodologies and makes recommendations for adjusting the way we think about and measure the economy.
