About this book

Examines the efforts to define and implement the concept of sustainable economic development, its relationship to the use of `natural' capital and human welfare, and its influence on recent environmental policy debates. The authors, who previously wrote Blueprint for a Green Economy, show how far environmental concerns have been integrated into everyday economic decision making - through the valuation of environmental goods and services, cost-benefit techniques, indicators for sustainable development, and the use of market-based instruments for environmental policy making around the world.

Contents

The Meaning of Sustainable Development; Valuing the Environment; Measuring Sustainable Development - Economic Approaches; Measuring Sustainable Development - Ecological Approaches; The Causes of Environmental Degradation; Solving Environmental Problems 1 - Property Rights, Markets and Macroeconomy; Solving Environmental Problems 2 - Choosing Policy Instruments; Business and the Environment; Ecological Economics - a New Paradigm?
