The social discount rate used by Stern, however, accounts for the possible increased wealth (consumption) of future generations through the product g (see the formula cited in the section on inherent discounting ). The letter C in the nickname RuBisCO stands for carboxylase in the full name, which reminds us of RuBisCOs design target: CO2. He goes on to say: I found that those of my friends, who were admirers of Marx, Freud, and Adler, were impressed by a number of points common to these theories, and especially by their apparent explanatory power.
