Isarescu, BNR: I am a product of the Rome Club

‘I am somehow a product of the Club of Rome’, Mugur Isarescu said on Tuesday, on the occasion of the release of the Romanian edition of the Rome Club Report ‘Nature bankruptcy – Denying the planet’s limits’, by Anders Wijkman and Johan Rockstrom, hotnews.ro informs quoting Agerpres. The authors advocate abandoning the GDP growth indicator as a development objective and shifting emphasis onto a limited number of other indicators of the material state. The creation of money needs rethinking, and so do banking system policies, Anders Wijkman, one of the authors of the book and co-president of the international expert group. The report, which is part of a wider campaign – ‘2052: The world 40 years from now’, designed to foster ideas for transforming the world in a more sustainable manner, confirms the existence of overwhelming scientific evidence that human pressures on the planet have reached a level that poses major risks to future welfare and prosperity’. The Club of Rome is an international group of experts including 1,500 national members and over 30 national associations. Its mission is to do anticipative assessments and evaluations of possible action for having a happier, more resilient and more sustainable planet.
