The Ethics of Economic Sustainability: Earth Day Celebration; John Ikerd, PhD; 17-Apr-2022 EthicalStL.org

    • Religion & Spirituality

How can we meet the economic needs of all in the present while leaving equal or better economic opportunities for those of the future? This is the question of economic sustainability, and economic sustainability is not possible without ecological and social sustainability. There is no economic incentive for a person to do anything for the sole benefit of anyone else, and certainly not for the benefit of those of future generations. Thus, the question of economic sustainability is ultimately a question of ethics.
