A Call to View the World Differently
Making the transition from our present growth-driven market system to ecological economics will require transformation in our personal lives and in social policy. The first, most basic change will be a shift in mindset and values - from an ethic of exploitation to an ethic of right relationship.
This will entail moving:
from a focus on material goods to holistic well-being; from excess to sufficiency; from exclusion to inclusion; from competition to cooperation; from pursuing privilege to serving the common good; from the pre-eminence of humanity to the reverence of all life.
