Example text

Holistic is about overcoming specialization. Inclusive is about overcoming specific interests. Elisabeth Mann Borgese uses the opportunity to link Giarini's book devoted to the significance of non-monetized values to explain that there is a need for a new "general theory of work": general in the sense that "money values" are not the sole aspect of work and human activity. The general theory of work has to include also nonpaid work as relevant. The relevance of non-paid "work" has to increase by realizing that after the stages of under-development, newly industralizing countries and maturing economies respectively, there has to be a new stage in which not the maximalization of the GNP per citizen, but the optimalization (striking a balance between paid and non-paid work) has to be "the agenda" for mankind living in dignity.

The pointed comments made by Ruud Lubbers, distinguished member of the Club of Rome Executive Committee, in his substantive introduction stress the importance and complexity of the issues discussed by Elisabeth Mann Borgese. In keeping with her previous work experience, views and vision, at the end of this report, the author puts forward a number of specific operational proposals for solving the problems before us. It is, however, the view of the Club of Rome Executive Committee members that no single solution embodies ultimate or absolute answers, but rather that a suite of alternative solutions must be envisaged.

In practical terms, however, little progress has been made at the institutional levelperhaps because the scope is simply too broad. In the more concrete setting of ocean and coastal management considerably more progress has been achieved in many countries, both developed and developing. e. all those whose livelihood depends on the management of ocean and coastal spaces and resources: municipal government as well as "civil society," the scientific community, fishers' associations, shipping companies, offshore oil companies, coastal developers, tourist organizations, coastal engineers, port and harbour masters, non-governmental organizations, etc.
