Abstract: This paper seeks to put into a proper policy perspective the current discussion on the attraction of 'sustainable development'. This is attempted by forcing an application of the often rhetorical nature of the argument and thus exposing the difficulties, particularly those of a political and socio-cultural nature, which impinge on the theme. These may inhibit what looks like a universally desirable policy option from coming into action. Reference is made to the peculiar circumstance of Malta, suggesting that implications of the concept are of even greater relevance to our own country. Yet, such a local realization is socially still far from visible in this present day and age.
