Title of Presentation: Ecological Ethics: Inclusive Wealth Index and Beyond

Abstract: In my 14th Sustainable Shared Growth Seminar paper, I made reference to “development that meets the needs of the present without sacrificing the right of future generations to fulfill their needs” (World Commission on Environment and Development [WCED], 1987) as an important notion for ecological sustainability. One of my research proposals was to demand from businesses and markets that they ensure that metrics include their ability to minimize environmental degradation and decline. Traditional indicators such as per-capita gross domestic product (GDP) and the Human Development Index (HDI) are the primary metrics in assessing the progress of nations today. This created fundamental problems: increases in total economic production do not necessarily translate into improvements in human well-being. Development is human and integral only to the degree that people flourish across the entire range of their personal gifts—body, mind, and spirit. In concrete terms, this means that people live in the heights of the human values of truth, freedom, justice, love, and friendship. While the Inclusive Wealth Report of the UN has proposed and developed the ‘Inclusive Wealth Index’ –which includes NATURAL CAPITAL and, in particular, ecosystem services–, such other goods as: the personal and social virtues, the quality of social relations, and personal initiative are equally essential, apart from wealth in the comprehensive measure of ‘prosperity for all’. In other words, if the core problems of the environment are in great measure ecological, their causes are largely anthropogenic. This presentation explores: (1) the role of improved social institutions in resolving ecological problems, (2) the introduction of more social enterprises whose principal function is to address an intractable social need and serve the common good, and (3) the critical role of the virtues –especially the cardinal virtues of temperance, fortitude, prudence, justice–, for these make the person more able to deliberate about and successfully pursue both his own good and the good of the communities to which he belongs.

Shared Growth Lessons from Japan (No.1 of a Series)

This gives an overview of a series of presentations to be made in the SGRA KKK (Kahusayan [Efficiency], Katarungan [Equity], Kalikasan [Environment]) seminars. The series hopes to express, in terms comprehensible to non-economists, the results of study on what this economist considers as one of the invaluable lessons that could be learned from Japan. This is the so-called “shared growth” development experience, wherein Japan was able to achieve rapid economic growth and significant improvement in income distribution. This presentation traces the sources of Japan’s ability to achieve shared growth to three aspects: 1. development financing; 2. development policy/strategy; and 3. corporate architecture. In addition to shedding light on an often-misunderstood East Asian neighbor, this study hopes to contribute to Philippine development, which is in dire need of achieving shared growth. The absence of shared growth implies a situation wherein there is a significantly large gap between the core and periphery sectors of an economy or a region. Later presentations of this series in future seminars will go deeper into the points raised in this presentation.
