We then develop a dynamic computable general equilibrium (CGE) model that incorporates major features of investment and traces the time-path of the economy as it recovers with and without dynamic economic resilience. . .

It begins by outlining the dominant concept of sustainability which emphasizes basic needs provisioning, secure land tenure and control over resources, and popular decision making. Common examples of natural resources include air, sunlight, water, soil, stone, plants, animals, and fossil fuels. . Admittedly, ecosystem services are hard to estimate, but energy use could be used as a surrogate. The rule itself is to check whether the present, discounted value of the flow of shadow profits generated by the perturbation is positive. . . . .

Proposition 2 is a local measure of sustainability. Although we use examples of the textile industry to illustrate our results, most of the insights in this paper can be extended to other industries. The phrase “sustainable development” was introduced by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, and Natural Resources (IUCN, 1980).
