...Week 13 Journal Sustainable growth, sometimes referred to as sustainability, was defined by the Brundtland Commission (World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987) as Economic Growth that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” For decades, GDP and growth in GDP were widely accepted as the measure of economic and well-being. However, this growth has also been accompanied by increased damages to the socio-economic systems. The notion of sustainable growth is a topic high on the international policy agenda, especially given the rise of China, India and other developing countries whose use of the world’s resources increases significantly each year. The major problem for developing countries focus on sustainability is the cost of slowing down development process and loses the opportunity of becoming convergence with the mainstream economy. It is still being discussed whether or not the tradeoff between sustainability and development is a cost worth making. Economic sustainability is dependent on the following conditions; 1) the rate of decline of non-renewable resources, 2) the excess rate of harvest of renewable resources, 3) the assimilative capacity of nature to absorb waste and, 4) pollution reducing technology and capital1. According to Stern’s review paper, the benefits of strong, early action on climate change can outweigh the costs in the development process as the “next 10 or 20 years can......

But instead of the pain, I felt something just as bad—the fierce, living weight of terrifying guilt. Just as I’d rammed him with a car, I was consumed by the knowledge that a stranger was lying in a hospital bed because of me.” P.49 | The Message of this quote is that | Day | Name | Problem | What ‘A’ learns from the character | Quote | The message that the quote portrays | 6016 | DylanCooper | | | “Just six words, and the conversation turns serious again.

Ent. Leadership

...Header: ENTREPRENEURIAL LEADERSHIP 1 Entrepreneurial Leadership Cassandra Moore Dr. Lisa W. Witzig The Business Enterprise November 9, 2010 ENTREPRENEURIAL LEADERSHIP 2 Discuss your leadership style or the style you aspire to be and how it compares to transactional, transformation, visionary, charismatic, principled, and entrepreneurial leadership. Of the leadership styles mention here, I would aspire to be a principled leader. Principled leadership apply moral and ethical standard of right and wrong, values and virtues, to policy development and decision making in business, government and the non profit sectors. Principled leadership happens when men and women of good character and integrity take the helm of an organization or enterprise and let their principles drive their actions. Transactional leadership theory was developed by Weber in 1947 and again by Bass in 1981. Followers are motivated through a system of rewards and punishment. The only relationship that develops between the transactional leaders and followers is based on an unwritten agreement that the sole purpose of the follower is to carry out the wishes of the leader. After the hiring process it may be clear that the transactional leader is in charge and the follower can hope to get better raised by following orders. When the follower or employee does well he/she may rewarded through a bonus, but if a deadline is missed then the leader may make it difficult for the......
