Science Presentation: Economics for a Fragile Planet: Rethinking markets, institutions and governance Global environmental problems are mounting, from climate change to biodiversity loss to increasing freshwater scarcity. Scientists refer to this current era as the “Anthropocene,” where human-induced threats to the Earth system could change it irrevocably and even endanger humanity. Designing policies and institutions to ensure that society mitigates these threats requires understanding how economies work, the relevant trade-offs, and the role of market incentives. Although some progress has been made in moving to a greener economy, any lasting transformation will require rethinking our markets, institutions and governance. As in any market economy, the first step begins with individuals – both as consumers and voters.
Music: Bruce Adolphe’s Out of the Air, inspired by poems of Stanely Kunitz, is music about memory, longing, and the mixture of past and present that is always in our minds.
