Vision

Martin Luther KingA long term vision provides a far better prospect for sustainable management than a short term vision. This leads to the following considerations.

  • Very high remunerations by which people can gain their lifetime income within a short term, may lead to a short term vision and poor sustainability decisions.
  • High remunerations however also lead to inventions, entrepreneurship and initiative that stimulate development of world and welfare.
  • Financial products with a short term or high risk may easily lead to a short term vision and poor sustainability decisions.

Sudden changes in nature, economy, population composition or the political or religious structure include the risk of destabilization of eco systems or social systems and cause crises.

The Oiconomy Standard stimulates long term visions and gradual developments and considers short term visions and sudden declines as harmful.
