During the Second Open Global Systems Science Conference in Brussels, June 10-12 2013, we are going to introduce and make available our paper entitled “Sustainability, Finance, and a Proposal from China”.
In this paper, we deal with one of the most interesting contributions to the debate about the global financial crisis. This contribution is a brief note by Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People’s Bank of China. It represents one of the very few attempts to place the present financial crisis within a long-term historical perspective. We highlight that striving for global financial governance is a paradigmatic example of a deeper underlying sustainability challenge.
