New forum post and supplemental required reading for Tuesday’s post

This week’s forum prompt requires a close reading and analysis of a controversial paper by Nobel Award winning economist Robert Solow  (CLICK LINK FOR PAPER sust-solow). Ready the paper and    and address the following question on the forum:  

What does sustainability mean to you and how does it fit, if it fits at all, into Solow’s definition? Do you agree that sustainability depends on the availability of substitutes? If aquaculture provides a substitute for wild caught fish, then is it appropriate to think that aquaculture is sustaining wild fisheries?   Nobel Laureate Dr. Bob Solow
