About this book

Since 1990, interest in growth theory in the context of the environment has increased dramatically, resulting in a vast array of articles and books applying different modelling approaches and focusing on a variety of diverse topics. Dealing with endogenous growth under environmental restrictions, Karen Pittel provides a comprehensive survey of the field and highlights some important issues that have so far been rather neglected within the debate on sustainable growth. The book begins with a thorough review of the concepts of sustainable development and growth. Based upon the findings of this review, the focus shifts towards the specifics of integrating environmental concerns into endogenous growth models, which reveals some interesting insights.


Part I A survey of the field: sustainable development and growth; modelling sustainable development and endogenous growth; models of endogenous sustainable growth. Part II Aspects of growth and sustainability: sustainable growth and recycling; sustainable growth and endogenous time preference; pollution, economic integration and endogenous growth summary and outlook.
