Sustainability - 'enough for all forever'
by Kaushik Sridhar
International Journal of Business Excellence (IJBEX), Vol. 7, No. 4, 2014

Abstract: People must overcome their tendency to waste increasingly limited time and resources on futile attempts to resolve problems associated with natural resource depletion, or natural habitat degradation, or climate change, or overpopulation, or the economic crisis du jour. These problems will only be resolved through the resolution of our fundamental 'predicament': our way of life is unsustainable. There is only one solution to our predicament, and to all of its derivative ecological and economic problems. We must, as a society, transition quickly and beginning immediately to a sustainable lifestyle paradigm, one in which we live entirely within our means ecologically and economically - forever. Any alternative course of action will, at best, only briefly postpone societal collapse. The focus of this paper is to discuss the issues and opportunities around sustainability from a multi-dimensional perspective.
