Recognize the Natural EconomyEdit

All of the human economy operates from within the much larger natural economy, and relies on natural wealth not only to thrive, but to survive. Nature's economy includes what economists call "ecosystem services"—pollination, clean water and air, oil, the processes that make soil fertile and recycle waste back into nutrients, and much more.</p>

Instead of: assuming human economic activity is fully independent from the natural world and economy, and treating the natural economy as if it was expendable (then finding out it isn’t).
