“Sustainable development only makes sense if our natural capital is sustained and not decreased no matter how much human capital we may have. Natural capital complements human capital but cannot be substituted by it, as the increase in the fleet of trawlers (human capital) is no substitute for the loss of a fish population (natural capital) that is being harvested.”
