Abstract

Facing the difficulties of measuring sustainability, Pearce and Atkinson proposed the Pearce-Atkinson (P-A) indicator, which provides an important direction or method of sustainability measurement. Although the weak sustainability rule is limited in its real world relevance, Pearce and Atkinson's research results show that it can yield some useful insights of sustainability into a system from some aspects. With the improvement of the P-A indicator, it will become more practically useful. At the same time, we should pay more attention to the study of the P-A indicator method with Amsberg's continuum, which will make the indicator for measurement of sustainability change gradually from "weak' to practically "strong'. -from Authors
