HDR_2011_ES_Complete Green National Product Many economists, environmentalists, and citizens have recently criticized the gross national product. The criticism stems from the fact that this measurement of national product does not account for environmental degradation and resource depletion. A new approach to the situation of allocating these omitted environmental features in the national product has been the advent of the green national product. Criticism of gross national product[edit] The gross national product (GNP) measures the welfare of a nation’s economy through the aggregate of products and services produced in that nation. History of the green national product[edit] Measure of economic welfare[edit] Ever since the Industrial Revolution scientists and economists have warned of an inflection point for the United States economy where expansion is inevitably limited by the steadily decreasing availability of natural resources.

Subsea cable rivals quiet on progress Last updated 05:00 19/11/2011 Supplied YELLOW SUBMARINE: A rover used to repair submarine communications cables aboard the cabling-laying ship Ill de Ree. The two companies vying to lay new submarine communications cables to New Zealand to break the Southern Cross Cable's near monopoly over international internet links have failed to report any progress in the past two months. But InternetNZ chief executive Vikram Kumar said broadband users frustrated by the relatively meagre data caps offered by internet providers and hoping for more competition should not be too concerned. While it would be in the companies' interests to keep updating the market, "it would be a good sign if people have their heads down working," he said. Pacific Fibre, a company backed by entrepreneurs Sam Morgan, Sir Stephen Tindall and Rod Drury, announced plans last year to build a US$400 million (NZ$527 million) fibre-optic cable between the United States, Australia and New Zealand. - © Fairfax NZ News

Remonter aux causes des RPS en se centrant sur le travail et son organisation : le modèle d'analyse C2R Le travail est au cœur de la prévention des risques psychosociaux : la meilleure des perspectives, pour prévenir ces risques, consiste à remettre l’activité au centre de la discussion, parler du travail et de l’activité de travail. C’est l’Anact qui a construit le modèle de compréhension C2R, encore appelé modèle des tensions : ce modèle d’analyse des RPS se fonde sur l’existence, inhérente au travail, d’une tension permanente dans l’entreprise, entre les exigences de l’organisation et celles des salariés. Cette tension se place dans un contexte : celui de l’entreprise d’une part, celui des relations professionnelles d’autre part. Cette tension peut être faible, dans le cas d’une relation confiante des salariés avec leur entreprise. Au contraire cette tension augmente lorsque l’écart entre les champs d’exigence de l’entreprise et des salariés est important. Limites de certaines approches des risques psychosociaux Le contexte des relations professionnelles ce sont : Du côté des salariés :

What Is Prosperity and How Do We Measure It? Click here to view this Outlook as an Adobe Acrobat PDF. No. 3, October 2009 Most economists traditionally use a simple economic measure known as GDP to define prosperity. But problems with the GDP measurement exist. Another shortcoming of the GDP measurement involves accounting for quality improvements where no change in price has occurred: BlackBerries or iPhones can do more and are vastly more useful than similarly priced phones from a decade ago. Even with improvements, however, dry, objective measures such as GDP fail to capture a lot of life. Shortcomings of Sarkozy's Report Sarkozy's commission raised some methodological and substantive issues when it released its report September 14; it suggested that household income may be a better prosperity indicator than business production and that median incomes describe societal inequality better than mean averages. The report manages to stay away from endorsing the wackiest evaluation ideas, but it still gives them plenty of oxygen. Notes
