Economy Environment against accepting the framework of goodwill, challenging some points of view long held by the green economy on labor economics, which inherited the green of neoclassical economics: “The problem between friendly alternatives to environment and existing practices is that they invariably reduce the product / person / hour, which means it generates less ‘surplus’ to hold the service sector. In large part this is due simply to environmental sustainability implies the need to redefine the ‘efficiency’ to give greater weight to sustainability that the output per person. If someone decides to do something specific, it is much easier to do it directly, that if you start to do something else and expect someone to come help you . And the crux of the matter is that many more people need to grow organic carrots if pesticides are used. This is the reason why organically grown foods are more expensive.It is simply because human labor is replaced by resources such as pesticides destroy the environment, long-distance transport, chemical fertilizers, and so forth. ” While the green economy can sustain the economy has” grown even if the new work comes from digging carrots instead of teaching the violin, “there is a” multiplier effect “to the decline of the surplus:” Every time you add a new producer to a lower trophic level, is also adding a new consumer at the lowest level. (That’s where the analogy with the biology of wildlife breaks … unlike the work of Jonathan Swift Modest Proposal, people of higher trophic levels are not eaten directly to people who are below them).The violin teacher frustrated by growing carrots is just the same as eating carrots, which means that a unit of account surplus less to sustain the creation of a new job teaching violin to someone. Thus, in effect, not only will not create a new job teaching the violin, if not you will be taking the food needed to keep another violin teacher! This is the “multiplier effect” that shrinks the economy. “This shrinkage is inevitable even if the number of stable jobs,” Employment will rise in primary and secondary sectors of the economy if the population develops a labor-intensive technology more sustainable with the environment. Occupations will grow organically and carrots to build straw bale houses. But the economy will decline because there are fewer of surplus wealth to buy goods or services.The population live in thatched houses and eat organically grown carrots but they could hire someone to teach them to play the violin … should learn for themselves in their spare time. ” Consequently the combination of points of view surplus value and those focusing on energy, which also requires acceptance of the decline of the service economy and a role for everyone, at a lower trophic level (such as low-level technology of a gardener, a farmer , fisherman, at least for some time. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing because for many people the economy has produced too many goods and services and, therefore, can easily accept a small drop in their standard of living and titrate with how much is up.
