|Resource title||Redefining prosperity: Resource productivity, economic growth and sustainable development|
|Author/source||Sustainable Development Commission|
|Summary text/ abstract||Part of the debate about sustainable development lies in confronting those difficult issues that most people would rather leave undisturbed. The compatibility between economic growth (as we know it today) and sustainable development is perhaps the most difficult of all those difficult issues. No one denies that securing the benefits that economic growth brings simultaneously generates both social and environmental externalities of varying kinds and severity: costs which, if they are large enough, can outweigh the welfare gains.|
