Eco_nomics vs. Economics: Open_Notes 1

what we have made and how we have made them has everything to do with what we are - a huge impact on the world and society - design to incorporate environmental implications, making resources more productive, to employ more people; it's all connected - what we make has to be able to be returned to the earth to become food for living systems, or in cycles of technical nutrient systems - no exceptions. -- ["The Ecology of Commerce", author Paul Hawken]

market economics looks at 1/2 of individual behaviour, ie., individual self-maximization, greed, avarice etc. vs. caring, sharing, cooperation - reinforcing competition vs. rewarding the better part of human nature - win-lose (competition) vs. win-win (cooperation) - competition now global economic warfare. -- ["Building a Win-Win World", author Hazel Henderson]
