Abstract for: Limits to Growth and Industrialisation - Insights from small and metaphorical system dynamics models and simulators

In this presentation I develop a small system dynamics model of the fishing industry to explore sustainability and limits to growth. I then use the same model as a metaphor to think about limits to global growth and industrialisation and to appreciate the structure and dynamics of more complex models of industrial society. Since my aim is also to communicate about dynamic complexity, the paper and accompanying talk illustrate basic concepts of stock accumulation, feedback structure and dynamics.
