Appropriate Products in Sustainable Development: Two Major Policies of the United Nations
AbstractInternational trade can increase both beneficial and harmful choices available to consumers and to firms. The debate about appropriate technology warned us to pay attention to pre-consumption choices. Later work on sustainable development alerted us to be aqually prudent about post-coosumption effects. While it is agreed that the product life cycle approach is highly useful for sustainable development, explicit attention must also be given to the consumer, to the consumption period and to the appropriateness of the product itself.
