I think economics is a very key aspect. The Economics of Happiness gives a guideline on how to redefine economics back to its original meaning, which is management of a household or community. What economics of happiness is to me is an economic system that revolves around quality of life issues which of course includes sustainable/regenerative practices and respect for all life and future generations. Measuring economic progress by improvements in quality of life, rather than how much money changes hands arbitrarily (as in GDP), is a core of this book and philosophy. The "economics" graph the author uses remind me of a permaculture flower - at a glance, you can tell which points are in and what the quality of life is in that community! Included of course are the condition of local natural resources, social justice issues, etc.

I did my permaculture design course with Wayne. He is really wonderful - extremely knowledgeable and a gifted facilitator.

Hope it goes very well.
