A sustainable economy is one that can meet our definition of prosperity today, and for future generations. Sustainable prosperity means something more than maximization of gross domestic product (GDP).  It implies economic opportunity (if not equality at some level) for all. It implies proper stewardship of the earth's resources.  A sustainable economy must take account of non-money measures of prosperity and incorporate structures and practices to encourage desirable outcomes.
