A place for further thoughts on the ten places to intervene in a system as outlined by Donella Meadows' paper "Places to Intervene in a System" [ http://www.wholeearthmag.com/ArticleBin/109.html ]

The ten places are:

  1. Numbers (subsidies, taxes, standards.
  2. Material stocks and flows.
  3. Regulating negative feedback loops.
  4. Driving positive feedback loops.
  5. Information flows.
  6. The rules of the system (incentives, punishment, constraints).
  7. The power of self-organization.
  8. The goals of the system.
  9. The mindset or paradigm out of which the goals, rules, feedback structure arise
  10. The power to transcend paradigms
