Towards a science of equity and sustainability
Walenty Ostasiewicz , Katarzyna Ostasiewicz
AbstractIn this paper we propose a general framework for the science of equity and sustainability,which we call also ecosocionomics. It was derived logically from a few basic prerequisites. The first of them is that all lives are supported by an ecosystem. The Mother Earth feeds humans generously, but to certain limits of her carrying capacity, which can’t be exceeded. The three goals: economic efficiency, ecosystem protection, and social fairness are not compatible, they stand rather in opposition one to another. . We share one world, therefore we have tojointly solve our common problems. This requires a general platform for policy making, which in turn requires envisioning the future. The supreme principle underlying that vision is argued to be a sustainable and equitable well-being for all kinds of beings
