Abstract
During the last two decades, a number of major trends have converged on the materials sector of the economy to significantly and irreversibly alter its traditional structure and character. However, no alternative conceptual paradigm has yet been commonly accepted as a vehicle for coherently and adequately explaining the newly emerging materials economy. A new paradigm is needed to provide a more useful and appropriate framework for measuring the evolving materials economy and evaluating increasingly complex materials issues.
