13 p, 1.9 MB Unraveling the complexity of the Jevons Paradox : the link between innovation, efficiency, and sustainability / Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Mayumi, Kozo (The University of Tokushima. Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences)
The term "Jevons Paradox" flags the need to consider the different hierarchical scales at which a system under analysis changes its identity in response to an innovation. Accordingly, an analysis of the implications of the Jevons Paradox must abandon the realm of reductionism and deal with the complexity inherent in the issue of sustainability: when studying evolution and real change how can we define "what has to be sustained" in a system that continuously becomes something else? In an attempt to address this question this paper presents three theoretical concepts foreign to conventional scientific analysis: (i) complex adaptive systems-to address the peculiar characteristics of learning and self-producing systems; (ii) holons and holarchy-to explain the implications of the ambiguity found when observing the relation between functional and structural elements across different scales (steady-state vs. [...]

17 p, 176.3 KB Toward partial redirection of energy policy for responsible development / Mayumi, Kozo (The University of Tokushima. Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat d'Història Econòmica
This paper addresses the surprising lack of quality control on the analysis and selection on energy policies observable in the last decades. As an example, we discuss the delusional idea that it is possible to replace fossil energy with large scale ethanol production from agricultural crops. [...]

The Great Tohoku-Kanto earthquake and resulting tsunami has brought considerable attention to the issue of the construction of new power plants. We argue in this paper, nuclear power is not a sustainable solution to energy problems. [...]

Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Ramos Martín, Jesús (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia i d'Història Econòmica)
This paper is to examine the proper use of dimensions and curve fitting practices elaborating on Georgescu-Roegen's economic methodology in relation to the three main concerns of his epistemological orientation. [...]

20 p, 281.2 KB Toward partial reorientation of land management for sustainability in view of material circulation : biophysical and historical analysis / Ferrari, Sylvie ; Mayumi, Kozo ; Ramos Martín, Jesús
This paper explores two major issues, from biophysical and historical viewpoints. We examine land management, which we define as the long-term fertility maintenance of land in relation to agriculture, fishery and forestry. [...]

19 p, 314.1 KB A critical analysis of dimensions and curve fitting practice in economics / Mayumi, Kozo (The University of Tokushima. Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences) ; Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Ramos Martín, Jesús (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia i d'Història Econòmica)
When dealing with sustainability we are concerned with the biophysical as well as the monetary aspects of economic and ecological interactions. This multidimensional approach requires that special attention is given to dimensional issues in relation to curve fitting practice in economics. [...]

Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Mayumi, Kozo (The University of Tokushima. Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences) ; Sorman Hadiye, Alevgul (Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
This paper presents an initial challenge to tackle the every so "tricky" points encountered when dealing with energy accounting, and thereafter illustrates how such a system of accounting can be used when assessing for the metabolic changes in societies. [...]

19 p, 716.6 KB An application of MSIASM to Chinese exosomatic energy metabolism / Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Mayumi, Kozo (The University of Tokushima. Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences) ; Ramos Martín, Jesús (Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada
The methodology of Multi-Scale Integrated The methodology of Multi-Scale Integrated Analysis of Societal Metabolism (MSIASM) is applied to analyze the Chinese economy. This paper presents four tasks: (i) identifying a set of benchmarks that makes it possible to compare various characteristics of the Chinese economy with those of other country groups and the world (level) average; (ii) explaining the differences over the selected set of benchmarks, by looking at the characteristics of the various sub-sectors of the Chinese economy; (iii) understanding existing trends and future feasible future development paths for China by studying the existence of reciprocal constraints between the whole economy and its sub-sectors; and (iv) examining plausible future scenarios of development.

15 p, 160.7 KB Multi-Scale Integrated Analysis of Societal and Ecosystem Metabolism (MUSIASEM) : an outline of rationale and theory / Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Mayumi, Kozo (The University of Tokushima. Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences) ; Ramos Martín, Jesús (Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada
This paper presents an outline of rationale and theory of the MuSIASEM scheme (Multi-Scale Integrated Analysis of Societal and Ecosystem Metabolism). First, three points of the rationale behind our MuSIASEM scheme are discussed: (i) endosomatic and exosomatic metabolism in relation to Georgescu-Roegen's flow-fund scheme; (2) the bioeconomic analogy of hypercycle and dissipative parts in ecosystems; (3) the dramatic reallocation of human time and land use patterns in various sectors of modern economy.
