View of Community
Interconnected view

Talking Points
  • Economy is part of society, which in turn exists within the environment
  • Environment can exist without us, we can't exist without the environment

This view shows that human economy--the exchange of goods and services--exists within human society. Society, in turn, exists in the environment of the earth's ecosystem.

This view emphasizes that humans are part of nature. Human economy and human society both exist within the environment. Indicators that measure progress within this view need to measure how the economy affects and is affected by society and the environment. A goal-based framework reflects this interdependent view of a community.
