What would a sustainable, universally beneficial economy look like?

The question proposed as the headline above is well answered in the TED talk below.
I also love Kate's doughnut of social and planetary boundaries (see picture at the end of this post).

I admit that all the talk about growth by politicians and some business leaders has taken me to boredom.

I stopped trying to grow my business a long ago. My continuous quest is to provide value to my clients that they can't get anywhere else, and as a consequence continue to live the lifestyle I have chosen.

Who will you become?

What will you do next?

Be remarkable.

PS Great points in the talk about the useless measurement of GDP and our addictions to growth and consumption of stuff. And my favourite word perhaps "regeneration."

PSS I don't believe it's all about the economy. I believe we need to return to focusing on the economy being part of society and never return to where we are now where society is part of the economy.
