Energy Accounting

Bucky Fuller concept of measuring the true cost of anything (object/product or process/service) in terms of total-life Energy consumption (in making, operating, disposing, etc.) (Transparent Society)

"Cosmic Costing"

The liquidity of the World Energy Grid would lead to such a method.

I think the Ecological Footprint model is highly derivative (and inferior) to Bucky's work.
