Any form of economic calculation based upon the maximisation of
a single objective function - profit, maximum food production,
minimum labour cost etc, is likely to significantly perturb the
natural world. Whether exploitation of natural resources should
be spoken of in the same sense as class exploitation is a
different matter.
