About this book

The System of National Accounts (SNA) is the source of the leading economic indicators often referred to by politicians, business leaders, and the media. These are the data used to formulate national economic policies and measure their effectiveness. However, the SNA takes no accounting of the economic impact of the depletion and degradation of natural resources. This book makes clear the consequences of continuing to ignore the complex codependency of environment and economy. Wouter Van Dieren has brought together some of the world's most respected experts to speak out about the faulty framework of the SNA, the dangers of emphasising production growth over quality of life, and the need to facilitate sustainable development.
