Money is the most powerful technology in human history. It built global civilization and is the most powerful tool for development and daily survival.
Globalization does not contribute to sustainable prosperity because it decreases the quality of life for people, mostly in least developed countries But globalization only offers social inequalities for people in least developed countries, but it allows most developed countries have unfair advantages.
Today’s complex global emergency evolved in spite of our seeking a better future for ourselves, as we repeated with good intent the same destructive action for thousands of years.
Basically, Sustainable development is the idea that human societies must live and meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable development is a way of organizing society so that it can exist in the long term.
A simple upgrade of this key technology will bring unprecedented and sustainable prosperity to everyone, resolving our complex global resource crisis, including reversing global warming, ending poverty, pandemic, and the Anthropocene Extinction, and much more.
The destructive action was and is rewarding low prices in our competitive marketplace without rewarding good stewardship equally.
Pursuing low prices to compete in the global marketplace, we duck the costs of good local stewardship. This is a terminal path because Nature’s strategy for sustainability of all living things is local intra-dependence, so ducking the costs of good local stewardship leaves the world poorer and poorer. Or, in other words, it’s insane to continue to do the same thing and expect different results.
Instead, we can empower and reward literally, pay ourselves for sustainably developing local human and natural resources everywhere, resulting in sustainable prosperity for everyone.
There was a reason all countries around the world came together to create the SDGs: to create a plan of action for people, planet, and prosperity. The challenges facing the world are complex and intertwined and require complex solutions. This year gives the opportunity to align our efforts.
