    about that article “None of the world’s top industries would be profitable if they paid for the natural capital they use”…

    It is two years old, the link to the actual report is broken, and the statement is that the top twenty *ranked by environmental impact* would not be profitable (out of 1000, I think, mentioned in the rest of the article, not having access to the actual report is kind of a problem).

    not nearly as impressive! I’m sympathetic to the idea externalities are making industries uncompetitive in a way we aren’t accounting for, but this article is an extremely poor argument for this!
