a Power Density Model
based on Vaclav Smil's works
It is essential that we understand what is too much and what is too little for humans, as per Kate Raworth's proposition.
Here I suggest to build a model based on Vaclav Smil's works on power densities. Having for example in supermarkets double or triple the amount of calories necessary for daily consumption is a waste.
Other aspects are also complicated: we should for example work on converting the use of fossil fuels to something more beneficial to humans (and use alternative sources of energy). But doing so without thinking of consequences means that potentially, dirtier resources (e.g. coal) risk being more used because they're cheaper.
This is why I propose to build a big graph with contstraints that will help us make the right policy choices. We may then make the whole financially attractive as a fund that rewards not investors but goes into a foundation for our children.

Ms Raworth's doughnut economics is a brilliant idea as we are reaching the boundaries of our planet.
