Econosystemics studies the dynamic system of value transformations within the planetary ecosystem.
Econosystemics blends economics, sociology, geopolitics, environmental science, and natural systems theory to see human economic activities in context: without that context our economies could not exist.
Economics encourages us to look not just to our own profit, or even just to the profit of our clan. Econosystemics asks us to identify with a much larger process in which value must flow cyclically rather than linearly.
Formerly an executive in the data-communications equipment industry (StrataCom, Cisco, Copper Mountain Networks), Bryan retired in 2001 to pursue his interests in systems theory, energy policy, climate change, ecology and economics.
