About this book

The economics of sustainability is much more complex than the neoclassical (Newtonian) economic approach to economic efficiency. Forest resources provide the ideal starting point for the economic analysis of sustainability. This book provides a systematic critique of neoclassical economic approaches and their limitations with respect to sustainability. Leading economists from different streams of economics discuss key economic aspects of sustainability and sustainable forest management including complexity, ethical issues, consumer choice theory, intergenerational equity, non-convexities, and multiple equilibria. This is the book which integrates different streams of economics - complexity theory, behavioral economics, post-Keynesian consumer choice theory, social choice theory, and non-convexities - and suggests the main features of Post-Newtonian economics.

Media reviews

From the reviews:"This book is very different from other literature regarding 'sustainability'. ! consists of 12 chapters covering a variety of perspectives on 'sustainability' in forest management. ! an excellent effort in terms of providing a broader picture of economics and its applications to sustainability. ! I would suggest that all economists and other professionals and practitioners who believe that the dominant contemporary economic paradigm is too narrow should read this book." (Yaoqi Zhang, International Forestry Review, Vol. 8, December, 2006)
