About this book

This book provides a first-of-its-kind, three-country macroeconomic model that will provide researchers with a framework for analyzing the international economic and ecological effects of alternative public policies - monetary, fiscal, and environmental. Economists are becoming increasingly aware of the interdependencies between the world economy and global ecology.The purpose of this study is to better understand the essential interdependencies between the world economy and the global ecosystem, including human populations.

&i;'Finally, an economics text that begins with 'The Global Ecosystem'. This book is an ambitious attempt to develop a truly integrated analysis of the economy, society, and the natural world.'&o;
