About this book

This book argues that mainstream economics with its present methodological approach is limited in its ability to analyze and develop adequate public policy to deal with environmental problems and sustainable development. Each chapter in "Post Keynesian and Ecological Economics" provides major insights into many of today's environmental problems like global warming and sustainable growth. Building on the strengths and insights of Post Keynesian and ecological economics and incorporating cutting edge work in economic complexity, bounded rationality and socio-economic dynamics, the book provides an interdisciplinary approach to deal with a broad range of environmental concerns.

The contributors show how and where ecological economics and Post Keynesian economics share common ground concerning environmental problems and shed light on how the two schools can learn from one another. The book will be of great value to Post Keynesian and ecological economists, as well as to those interested in new approaches to important global environmental issues.
