 THE BOSTON COMPANY, EARTHWATCH SPONSOR DEBATE ON
 BALANCING ENVIRONMENT VS. ECONOMY
 WHAT: A debate among the four world-class environmental experts
 and economists.
 THEME: "Consider the Carrying Capacity of the Earth: Finite or
 Infinite?" (Are marketplace forces the problem or
 solution? How should economists view biological wealth?)
 WHEN: Thursday (March 5) at 6:15 p.m.
 WHERE: American Academy of Arts and Sciences
 136 Irving St., Cambridge
 SPONSOR: The Boston Company
 DEBATORS: --Jerome Rothenberg, professor of economics at MIT;
 --Allen Sinai, executive vice president and chief
 economist of The Boston Company;
 --Norman Myers, chairman and visiting professor in
 international environment at University of Utrecht,
 Netherlands;
 --Edward O. Wilson, Baird professor of science at
 Harvard University and Pulitzer Prize winner in the
 field of sociobiology.
 LOGISTICS: All print journalists, radio broadcasters and television
 reporters are invited to attend. Guests available for

 STORY LINE:
 These distinguished scientists and economists will debate the short-term vs. long-term effects of over using our global resources. Part of the discussion will focus on recent ominous population growth warnings and a reported expanding hole in the ozone layer. Scientists might argue that over-use of our natural resources will not only destroy the environment but in the long run rob the planet and its population of the future use of those resources. Economist might argue that market forces hold sway over enforced regulation of resource use.
