Research at the borderlands of economy, ecology, and ethics is presented in this timely study. The contributors build from a theoretical critique of the tradition of cost-benefit analysis and a foundation for a macroeconomics of environmental sustainability and distributive justice. Attention is then turned to applied research on biodiversity, climate change, and energy. Each section is anchored with overviews by top scholars in these areas - including Herman Daly, Carl McDaniel, Stephen Schneider, and Nathan Hagens - and followed by detailed analyses reflecting the transdisciplinary approach of ecological economics.
'This book presents the best evidence yet that ecological economists in the United States are becoming a strong and unified voice on biodiversity loss, climate change, and energy options. The arguments presented here are rich, sound, convincing, timely, and are not about to lose their saliency any time soon.' - Richard B. Norgaard, University of California, Berkeley, US 'Erickson and Gowdy have put together a wonderful collection of contributions from a wide range of scholars that will greatly advance ecological economics.' - Herman E. Daly, University of Maryland, College Park, US
