Reductionistic decision making criteria in the construction industry

Nature:

The construction industry's decision making criteria is reduced to individualistic, profit making and short term values. They guide the investment of capital, the organization of labour, the application of technology and the distribution of goods and know-how. As such, the industry is not accountable to the broad spectrum of long-term social values required by today's globally interdependent society.
