Sostenibilidad y cambio de paradigmas en el turismo

Palabras clave: Sostenibilidad, Paradigma, Teoría

Resumen

Algo importante cambió el mundo hace 50 años. Fue a finales de la década de 1960 y durante toda la década de 1970 cuando la comprensión de los límites del crecimiento que se acercaban rápidamente cayó como un martillo, asestando un fuerte golpe a los paradigmas políticos y socioeconómicos del mundo de los negocios. Por supuesto, los economistas clásicos como Malthus ya habían dado la voz de alarma 150 años antes. Entonces, los avances científicos y tecnológicos pospusieron lo inevitable. Finalmente, los pensadores del Club de Roma y dos crisis petroleras disiparon la ilusión de un crecimiento ilimitado en un planeta pequeño, retomando la controversia en el siglo XXI.
