The limits to certainty : facing risks in the new service economy by Orio Giarini( Book )

32 editions published between 1989 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second edition of The Limits to Certainty has been thoroughly revised and edited. A new chapter on `Facing Social Uncertainty' has been added, while the section on `Value and Time in the Service Economy: The Notion of Utilization' has been extended in order to include the conclusions of recent research conducted by the authors on the subject of waste prevention on the product level, i.e. making a better use of resources during the utilization of goods. The key to economic progress has always been the better allocation of resources, and the majority of resources available today are in the form of service activities. In order to measure and exploit such resources, one needs a theoretical frame of reference based on the notions of risk and uncertainty, rather than on the 'certain' equilibrium of the present economic system. Service means performances, in real periods of time, which means that the identification of values must be based on probabilities: the assessment of the probability and cost of a distribution of events in the future. The Limits to Certainty, with a Preface by Ilya Prigogine and a Foreword by Alexander King, is thus about the economic foundations of the Service Economy. The Limits to Certainty is published under the auspices of the Club of Rome and is, in fact, a follow-up to a report published by the Club in 1980, Dialogue on Wealth and Welfare, in which is was proposed that the limits to growth were the limits of a specific type of economic growth that had successfully been developed voer a period of two centuries. This earlier report went on to propose that a new economic growth needed to integrate economic and ecological factors, in practice as well as in theory and therefore revise the notion of economic value. This economic transition developed parallel to a growing movement at a more fundamental philosophical level favoring indeterminism against determinism: the notions of risks and uncertainty are increasingly considered as the realm of the new challenges, as compared to a perception - typical of the deterministic era - according to which risk and uncertainty reflect a level of `imperfect knowledge' which science would or should eliminate: a positive versus a negative connotation of risk and uncertainty
The performance economy by Walter R Stahel( Book )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The industrial economy is turning into a functional service economy, yet too many businesspeople and policymakers are still using outdated business models focused around designing and manufacturing goods for sale. This book outlines the strategies and models needed for tomorrow's challenges: how to use technology and knowledge to improve performance, create jobs and increase income. It also shows what skills will be required to produce and sell performance, and to manage performance over time, and how manual and skilled jobs can contribute to reduce the consumption of non-renewable resources."--Jacket

Les déchets, les éliminer, les revaloriser, les éviter by Walter R Stahel( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La jacquette indique : "Les déchets proviennent aujourd'hui surtout de l'activité industrielle de l'homme : les déchets miniers et de fabrication, les produits au rebut, et les emballages. Les problèmes des déchets se posent au lieu de "chute" (end of pipe), la solution préférée étant encore souvent leur élimination, normalement dans le cadre légal. Mais les déchets sont aussi issus de nos systèmes de valeur et de responsabilité. Au lieu de perfectionner leur élimination, nous pourrions essayer de les revaloriser ou de les éviter. "Déchet" veut dire un bien avec une valeur perçue comme négative et sans propriétaire. Des politiques de précaution, ainsi que des stratégies de "valeur continue" et de "propriété continue" des produits manufacturés, permettraient d'éviter la majorité des déchets. Elles changeraient toutefois aussi la structure de l'économie présente, qui est linéaire et basée sur la valeur ajoutée. La nouvelle structure correspondrait à une économie en boucles fermées qui met l'accent sur le maintien de la valeur d'utilisation, par une gestion innovatrice du parc des biens."
