majora carter TED talk

as the title indicates, this is a link to a talk by majora carter at TED in 2005. i thought it was pretty great, the part where she started to lose me a little was while she was discussing her desire for a triple bottom line decision making, embracing her inner capitalist, etc. this is a constant issue with me--acknowledging the importance of capital while wanting to subvert that importance. what are the incremental policies we can implement in transportation and environmental justice to facilitate the endpoint we envision? short term policies undoubtedly need to focus on financial gain, but in the long term we have to face some costs as we transition away from fossil fuels, to more local scale production.
