Harmonization game. [Need for management to resolve]

Journal Article:

Abstract

The problem is to try to harmonize socio-economic and environmental goals by redefining patterns of resource use and the uses of growth. The author uses examples mainly of developing countries, with the exception of the time uses, but the same framework can be applied to industrial countries faced by a development crisis of their own. The interrrelations that exist between demand, supply, and the environment are summarized. The development goal consists of a mix of goods and service which reflects the working time of the population as well as of different models of use of available non-working time. It is concluded that for industrialized and developing countries the harmonization game cannot happen instantly. Some measures require only imagination while others require retooling of the economy with low-waste technology or the promotion of solar house heating requiring time and investment. (MCW)
