About this book

Sustainable development is a concept that is receiving increasing attention from world decision makers. This timely volume contains a selection of both the seminal papers and a cross-section of current thinking. It should be valuable to researchers, students and practitioners interested in this important topic. Part 1 presents early articles linking the macroeconomy with the environment. Part 2 contains general surveys of the relationship between economic growth and environmental degradation. Included in part 3 are papers with mathematical models seeking to incorporate environmental variables into macroeconomic frameworks. Part 4 focuses on the linkages between international trade and the environment. The final section examines progress on the greening of the system of national accounts - an important prerequisite for environmental-macroeconomic policy making.
