About this book

Drawing on both economics and ecology, this book offers telling insights into the confusing 'jobs versus environment' debates as well as charts a recommended path towards a more co-habitable relationship. Avoiding the extreme views that economic growth will either destroy or save our natural environment, this book takes a more discriminating stance and illuminates why our nation's natural environment is both better and worse than forty years ago.

Media reviews
Bob Williams has written an insightful, clear, and up to date book that brings economics and ecology together in a fruitful way. Highly recommended!- Herman E. Daly, University of Maryland, USA "Greening the Economy breaks new ground in articulating the critical relationships between ecosystem services upon which our lives depend and the difficult policy choices that must be made to restore and preserve those services. The book offers concrete local examples and a fresh roadmap to policymakers, academics, and citizens interested in market-based solutions to environmental challenges."- Trip Van Noppen, President, Earthjustice
