    This week on World Ocean Radio: part twenty of the multi-part BLUEprint series. In this episode we discuss natural capital and the true cost of things both financial and social. And we argue that the price we pay must include the cost of irreplaceable raw materials, waste, the harvest and exploitation of natural resources, workforce health, and community impacts.
