We believe that for governments to be able to make informed decisions on economic policy, they need to consider a wide range of perspectives. The present challenges to humanity cannot be met with quick fixes, but with systemic changes, as the challenges are the result of system failures. Our aim is to provide perspective based on the following:
Given the present conditions in our nation, how can we design economic rules and management systems to sustainably ensure equity, prosperity and general well-being?
To this end we offer:
Advice and consultation: the Foundation works in an advisory and consulting role around market driven solutions including:
- Poverty reduction
- Emissions reduction
- Avoiding housing bubbles
- Making capital available for clean-tech initiatives
- Fulfilling government objectives
- Handling energy price rises
Lectures and presentations
We offer speakers who can explain the reasoning behind how flexible control mechanisms can be applied in theory in practice, how control techniques can be applied to avoid bubbles, poverty and economic depression.
Education and training
The Foundation offers a wide range of education and training in flexible mechanisms.
As Deliverables we:
- Produce policy papers, discussion papers and white papers on a wide range of topics within sustainable economics
- Develop economic mechanisms like the flexible emission fee management system
- Accept invitations to present our perspectives at conferences
- Provide policy guidance
- Participate in research and development programs
- Participate in the development of humanitarian solutions to water and food security
- Organize think tanks, workshops and seminars on the subject of sustainable economics
Typical questions we address include:
•Limited global fossil energy supply will prevent developing countries from following the same energy intensity patterns historically seen in OECD countries. Are there ways to “leap frog” development to create prosperous societies on a low fossil energy intensity?
•How interest rates can be kept low and inflation under control.
•How taxes and fees can be applied in a way that will promote the use of renewable energy whilst keeping business development stable.
•How to invest in water and food security to lay the foundation of prosperity.
•How to transform the economy from a destructive unsustainable economic growth paradigm.
•Measuring the costs of fossil fuel dependency – and finding ways to create energy resilience.
•Redefining work from a point of view of sustainable development.
•Measuring things that matter – economic and social indicators.
•How to introduce a new economic paradigm capable of eliminating moral hazard, speculative bubbles, market crashes, financial crises and depressions.
