The Ecology of Commerce5

Written by Paul Hawken

No business in the world can long survive on its capital reserves. Every businessperson understands this. yet many ignore the fact that this same principle applies equally to energy and the environment: No culture will long survive drawing down its energy capital, and so any worthwhile green tax will eventually halt the depletion of the world's resources. The task in energy, as in food, clothing, and shelter, is to create an economy that lives off of current income, not capital resources.
