The main theme of the present book is instead based on the idea that the correct approach to natural capital can produce a lasting economic recovery. Breakthrough innovations will not emerge from constantly increasing the power of computers or expanding the functionality of smartphones, nor by inventing spacecraft or ultrafast futuristic transportation systems. Taking the environment into account can, however, become the main crucible that will produce these innovation clusters. But the transition to such new modes of growth constitutes a largely unknown path, to which most economic and political actors are reluctant to commit themselves, preferring instead to cling to established frameworks.
