Ecological Economics and the Ecology of Economics: Essays in Criticism | Herman Daly

In this new book Herman Daly, a leading commentator on the environment, offers lively criticism of existing work on ecological economics and the economics of ecology. The theme throughout the book is about changes in perspective, attitudes and policies required to avoid uneconomic growth – that is, the impoverishment that results when the environmental and social costs of growth exceed the benefits.

Key issues addressed include: growth economics; misunderstandings of thermodynamics; economic development and population; globalization; money; and humans in the ecosystem. This book should be of interest to economists, ecologists, environmentalists, public policy scholars and activists as well as social philosophers
