Learning From the Global Financial Crisis

Mark Starik

Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the recent global financial crisis at a multilevel, multisystems approach, focusing on natural environment-related inputs, processes, and outputs. It explicates other systems-oriented phenomena at each level to provide a holistic systems framework for understanding the financial crisis and its connections to sustainability. It notes that this method provides a more comprehensive analysis of crisis causes and necessity of multifocal solutions that include residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional investments in improving the quality of air, water, land, and other natural resources. The discussion argues for greater emphasis on eating lower on the food chain, for both human and natural environmental health benefits, both of which may have long-lasting financial effects.

Keywords:   multisystems sustainability, global financial crisis, food chain, natural environment
