About this book

Argues that our willingness to view obviously unscientific assumptions about the alleged "lawful" workings of market systems in mainstream economics as scientific impedes our ability to appreciate the extent to which current global economic activities constitute a program for ecological disaster. Nadeau states that we must displace neoclassical economic theory with an environmentally responsible economic theory.
