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

33 editions published between 1989 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I consider it a privilege to have been invited to write a preface for "The Limits to Certainty". It is however paradoxical that a theo retical physicist be asked to write about a monograph dealing mainly with service economics. Notwithstanding, I am delighted to do so. Indeed, it is striking that two so widely different fields like physics and social science, and more especially economics, can interact in such a constructive way. There is no question here of reductionism. Nobody claims to be able to reduce social scien ces to physics, nor to use patterns of social interaction in order to formulate new laws for atoms. What is at stake here is more im portant than reduction; the age-old separation between the so-cal led "hard" and "soft sciences" is breaking down. This separation has a long history. First, one should recall the influence of Newton's achievement on the formulation of scienti fic goals. This influence led to the formulation of equilibrium mo dels for supply/demand adjustment. As was noticed by Walter Weisskopf: "the Newtonian paradigm underlying classical and non-classical economics interpreted the economy according to the patterns developed in classical physics and mechanics, in analogy to the planetary system, to a machine or clockwork: a closed auto nomous system ruled by endogenous factors of a highly selective nature, self-regulating and moving to a determinate, predictable point of equilibrium" (The Geneva Papers on Risk and Insurance (1984), Vol. 9, no. 33, pp. 335-360)
The performance economy by Walter R Stahel( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 219 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economy is turning into a functional service economy, yet too many businesspeople and policymakers are still using outdated business models focused around designing and manufacturing goods for sale.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
Économie circulaire : système économique et finitude des ressources by Vincent Aurez( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "L'économie circulaire est devenue un pilier de la transition vers une utilisation efficace des ressources. G7, Club de Rome, ONU, GIEC, Union européenne ... un consensus se dégage pour voir dans l'économie circulaire un changement de paradigme propice à concrétiser un développement durable. Guidant le développement des politiques publiques de nombreux États et les stratégies d'entreprises à différentes échelles, elle propose un cadre d'observation mais aussi des solutions dont se saisissent les citoyens, les entreprises et les États. Les différentes dimensions constituant l'économie circulaire sont d'abord examinées pour inscrire sa trajectoire dans la vie des idées. S'appuyant sur des champs scientifiques existants et productifs en termes de méthodes et d'outils, les deux première parties de l'ouvrage visent à situer et comprendre. La troisième partie est dédiée aux méthodes et outils destinés à mesurer, depuis les dimensions les plus macros dédiées aux États et territoires jusqu'à celles concernant les entreprises et leurs produits. Enfin, la dernière partie vise la mise en application, de l'échelle du citoyen à celle de l'État, s'appuyant sur de nombreuses études de cas. Premier livre de synthèse sur le sujet, cet ouvrage constituera ainsi la référence pour comprendre, mesurer et agir dans le domaine de l'économie circulaire."

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."
