For all the occasional good news stories, the natural world remains in a spiral of decline. If our children are not to inherit a world decimated by the industrial excesses of our generation, then clearly something fundamental has to change, but what? The good news, Simon Lamb argues, is that Nature itself provides a clear blueprint. It shows us how to reorganise the economic domain to protect and benignly coexist with natural environments, halt species decline and benefit the poorest. Junglenomics is the result of 25 years of research and insight. It provides a new vision of a future world rescued from decline, gained through an understanding of the profound forces at work in modern economies
Simon Lamb is a writer on evolution, economics and the environment. He is also a founder partner in a successful Fine Art business. He was born in London in 1951, and his early years were divided between London and Wendens Ambo, Essex, where the beautiful, as yet unspoiled countryside incubated a deep love for nature. He studied economics, maths, languages and art at Wellington College. Simon began his working career in finance in the family firm, but his passion for nature, countryside, and natural science convinced him to move first to North Wales, and later to Dorset, a much-loved childhood stamping ground. He has also been involved in farming for most of his working life. He and his wife Kristina have four children, Chris, Jamie, Antony, and Tom, and 3 grandchildren, Cameron, Sophie and Charlie.
