An attempt to operationalize the recommendations of the ‘Limits to growth’ study to sustain the future of mankind. Acharya, S. R. & Saeed, K. Towards Sustainable Development: Essays on System Analysis of National Policy, 1998. 00000
abstract   bibtex   
Experimenting further with the World3 model, this paper attempts to formulate the operational means to implement the critical recommendations of the "Limits to Growth" study. With feedback as the organizing principle and the work of Daly (1991), Page (1977) and Saeed (1985) as guidelines, additional policy space has been built into the model to accommodate controversial views on resource policy and to self-regulate its critical policy parameters. The policies so created not only appear to lie within the scope of existing and potentially feasible regulatory institutions, they are also insensitive to their respective behavioral parameters as well as to the timing of intervention. Furthermore, these policies strive to influence day-by-day actions of the actors in the system instead of imposing the drastic schedule of changes in life-style that is implicit in the literal interpretation of the broad recommendations of the "Limits" study. In addition, the implementation of these policies appears to be possible through a national rather than a global order.
