Ecological Literacy

Print
Written by Fritjof Capra

Corporate economists treat as free commodities not o­nly the air, water, and soil, but also the delicate web of social relations, which is severely affected by continuing economic expansion.  Private profits are being made at public costs in the deterioration of the environment and the general quality of life, and at the expense of future generations.  There is a lack of feedback, and basic ecological literacy tells us that such a system is not sustainable.
