Being, having, doing and interacting: towards ethical democracy, governance and stewardship

Janet Judy McIntyre-Mills, Natasun Binchai

Abstract


The presentation of the attached user guide aims to address the conference themes by considering the challenge posed by Stiglitz (2010) to the Australian Productivity Commission, namely to foster an understanding that the wellbeing of humanity is dependent on the global commons. The focus of the research is on addressing social, economic and environmental factors that help to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Joseph Stiglitz  past president of the World Bank has stressed (at the invitation of the Australian Productivity Commission) that the bottom line is wellbeing – this requires building stocks for the future ( Stiglitz, et al, 2010).  Wellbeing is crucial to re-designing economics.
