Can Ecological Economics Shape a Shock-Resistant Planet | April 9, 2020

[62:24 Herman Daly] Ecological economics is used to being criticized from the right from … the neoclassical growth-istic economists, right-wing criticism. We’re not so used to getting criticized from the left, but that’s been coming from some neo-marxist folks recently, and they don’t like the idea of markets.

[62:48] They don’t like the idea of prices. And so, at that point, I say well wait a minute, I’m all in favor of more social justice, of greater equality in the distribution of income, but when you when you go all the way to central planning, as opposed to Marxist, then I sort of recoil, and say, wait a minute, let’s look at history.

[63:16] You know what happened with the war, communism efforts of the early Soviet Union, they had to back off from the abolition of markets. What happened to the collectivization of agriculture? That was a big failure. And how are you going to handle the huge information problems of central planning?

[63:38] So I would say markets are necessary, although certainly not sufficient. We need a whole lot of planning, to keep markets as good servants rather than bad masters.

[63:53] I wonder how how you react to what I think of as a kind of ecological economic principle of … raising the price for the sake of resources, basic resources,for the sake of inducing efficiency and capturing the rent — the resource rent — and redistributing that for the sake of equity.

[64:22] Does that make sense? Many people, I think, don’t buy that. And so I’d be interested in hearing your views.

  • Redesigning Our Theories of Theories of Change, Peter H Jones + Ryan J A Murphy (ST-ON 2020/11/19)
    While the term “theory of change” is often used by funders expecting an outcome of systems change for their investment, is there really a theory there? The November 2020 Systems Thinking Ontario session was an opportunity for Peter H. Jones (OCADU) and Ryan J. A. Murphy (Memorial U. of Newfoundland) to extend talks that they had given over a few days for the […]
  • Learning With Humility: Systems Thinking and Reordering Priorities (Global Change Days, 2020/10/22)
    For the third of three workshops by the Systems Changes Learning Circle in October 2020, Kelly Okamura, Dan Eng and Joanne Dong led a Beacon Event for Global Change Days. This session was one in a series for global changemakers.  Our expectation was that they would be hands-on practitioners, with relatively low familiarity with systems thinking methods and t […]
  • Theoretical Grounds, Pragmatic Grounds: Methods for Reordering our Priorities through Systems Changes Learning (ST-ON 2020/10/19)
    For the second of three workshops by the Systems Changes Learning Circle in October 2020, we convened a session for the monthly Systems Thinking Ontario meeting.  The focus of this workshop was a review of progress to date on methods by the scholarly team, informed by the adoption and use by the field team. The framing of this presentation centered on develo […]
  • Reordering Our Priorities Through Systems Changes Learning (RSD9, 2020/10/14)
    For the first of three workshops by the Systems Changes Learning Circle in October 2020, Zaid Khan led a session for the Relating Systems Thinking and Design RSD9 Symposium.  Our team had developed a set of reference slides for the three workshops, from which content that would most resonate with the audience could be selected.  RSD attracts designers across […]
  • Strategic Communications + The Brand Stack, Zaid Khan + David Akermanis (ST-ON 2020/09/14)
    Two Major Research Projects (MRPs) — they might be called master’s theses elsewhere — by Zaid Khan and David Akermanis reflect the Systemic Design agenda within the OCADU program on Strategic Foresight and Innovation (SFI).    To graduate, all SFI students complete an MRP.  With many subjects and techniques covered during SFI studies, only a few exercise Sys […]
  • Beyond the Tavistock and S-cubed legacy
    While it’s important to appreciate the systems thinking foundations laid down by the Tavistock Institute and U. Pennsylvania Social Systems Science (S3, called S-cubed) program, practically all of the original researchers are no longer with us.  Luminaries who have passed include Eric L. Trist (-1993), Fred E. Emery (-1997), and Russell L. Ackoff (-2009).  T […]
