Summary:  financial measures created by bankers and governments are lies writ large — they are totally isolated from the physical reality of the biosphere, and utterly corrupt — therefore they are part of the problem, not part of the solution.  The author proposes a more holistic, integral approach with deep integrity that eliminates corruption, the externalization of natural resource costs to the public or the future, and the radical reduction of waste now charged off as an external diseconomy for which corporations and governments are not held accountable.  This may well be a ROOT document for any intelligence professional aspiring to be relevant to the public interest going into the future.
