>Greyson, J., 2007. An economic instrument for zero waste, economic
>growth and sustainability. Journal of Cleaner Production 15: 1382-1390.
>If global problems such as climate change and waste remain
>unresolved, society can choose either to continue attempting to
>incrementally reduce wastes and lessen impacts, or to consider a
>more ambitious approach that paradoxically may be easier
>to implement. This paper suggests how an approach designed to
>prevent waste and other global impacts could be based upon the
>established practices of precycling, circular economic policy and
>recycling insurance. A new economic instrument called 'precycling
>insurance' is proposed, so that decision-making can be led by the
>market rather than by prescriptive regulation or educational
>campaigns. The approach gains relevance now that China is developing
>a national 'Law on the Promotion of the Development of Circular Economy'.
