Dr. Mariana Bozesan interviews:
My interview partner today is former member of the European Parliament and president of the Club of Rome, Anders Wijkman, member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences and Chair of Climate KIC.
In this videocast, Anders Wijkman discusses how to start the economy post Covid and, more importantly, how to transform it to become sustainable to meet the current needs. Anders insists that education and science have to get rid of their silos and reductionistic ways, and take center stage in teaching key players how nature really works. In his view, “economists are the worst [educated] because they they learn absolutely nothing about how the planet works, so they put an economic and technological system on top of nature.” He offers his thoughts on how to restructure the economy including its cost structure. For example, manufacturing a car costs nothing compared with its impact on nature, natural resources, and pollution. From an investor’s perspective, Anders thinks that our “taxation system, it’s very, very skewed with only about 5% of taxes and fees related to the environment, energy and pollution and resources” making “the whole cost structure flawed” which affects investors, businesses and entrepreneurs.
