I’m sorry to trot out the old chestnut about “what gets measured is what gets managed,” but this last week has been a trying game of numbers for me. As I head toward the weekend, I am once again forced to question the utility of so much of what we spend our time measuring.

From where we are standing today, the key questions are:

  • How do we make economic progress without destroying the natural, life-sustaining resource base necessary for that progress?
  • How do we achieve progress for all rather than progress for just a few?
  • How do we address the real issues of our time: poverty alleviation, infectious disease, famine and civil strife?

For Gary's perspective on how to address these key questions, check out his latest Environmental Leader article.
