The Nominees

This is not a new Nobel Prize, it is a proposal for a Peace Prize to be shared by three nominees as follows:

  • The Club of Rome for bold foresight in commissioning the Limits to Growth study done at MIT in the early 1970s.
  • Dr. Herman Daly, for attempting to revolutionize our thinking by placing the human economy within the finite ecology of our small, shared planet with Ecological Economics of which he is the founder.
  • Jorge Mario Bergoglio, more familiarly known as Pope Francis, for bravely challenging the status quo of an economic model that has created gross social inequities and undermined the sustainability of human civilization.
