Katastrofická kríza je neodvratiteľná

Druhá, oveľa horšia kríza je pred nami, nakoľko súčasný ekonomický model je veľmi nebezpečný. Chamtivosť je dominantnou hodnotou dnešného sveta a to nie len z ekonomického hľadiska, ale aj z hľadiska ľudstva ako takého.

A second, more catastrophic crisis is unavoidable because our economic model is "dramatically poisonous." Max-Neef explains that "Greed is the dominant value today in the world and as long as that persists, we're done!" But he doesn't just mean done economically, he means done as a species.

He believes the economy will "catastrophically" self-correct and a new model must emerge with principles to humanize the economy in balance with the biosphere. His five principles and values to develop a humanized economy are as follows:

1. The economy is to serve the people, not the people to serve the economy.

2. Development is about people, and not about objects.

3. Growth is not the same as development, and development does not necessarily require growth.

4. No economy is possible in the absence of ecosystem services.

5. The economy is a subsystem of a larger finite system -- the biosphere, hence permanent growth is impossible.

The fundmental value that is needed to sustain this new economy is, "No economic interest, under any circumstances, can be more important than LIFE in all its manifestations.
