Jürgen Plöhn and George Chobanov

The articles in this volume are selected from the contributions to two international conferences. Authors and teams tackle general economic approaches and developments with respect to new concepts for the production possibility frontier, the connection of development and exports diversification and improvements to the business process. Other contributors address economic sustainability with respect to an institutional path to sustainable growth, available financial instruments, behavioral models of economic expectations, solutions for waste treatment as well as to technological aspects related to security, privacy and IT governance. Finally, a third group of authors discusses health policy in the EU and postsecondary education in Bulgaria as aspects of public welfare.

Financial Instruments for Sustainable Development

Abstract: The paper pleads for a strict limitation of CO2 emissions in order to stop the global warming. Less academic than normative oriented, the author assumes that a “Super Kyoto” is necessary: a system of quantity rationing.

Reminding the readers of the words of René Dubos: „Think globally, act locally!“, the paper points to smart grids as a local based technical approach that might be successfully applied in a global scale in order to stop wasting all kinds of resources.
