Abstract

This paper was prepared as a background paper for the panel on "Global Capitalism and Sustainable Development"; in the International Conference on Global Ethos to be held at the United Nations University in Tokyo, Japan, in October 2000. It surveys the major issues involved in defining sustainability, and the relationship thereof to development and the behaviour of capitalist economies. A particular focus throughout, in line with the aims of the conference, is the importance of the fundamental changes in values that are required if sustainability to be achieved and maintained.
