I don't believe our economy nor our planet will be healthy until we acknowledge that the economy is merely a subset of the environment and we begin to shift to a cradle-to-cradle society. It makes perfect sense. We haven't expressed the true costs of extraction or wastes because they were "externalized." The way to maximize profits will be to recycle wastes as the source object (ie food) for another supply chain, either thru selling it to another process or back into the original.
