A Program Sponsored by the Oregon State Bar Sustainable Future Section

|An economy’s productive capacity is dependent on four general forms of capital–physical, human, social and natural. Focusing on the Pacific Northwest, this program will discuss the importance of economic growth, how natural capital contributes to economic growth and what it means for an economy to grow sustainably.|
