Ecological economics : principles and applications by Herman E Daly( Book )

40 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introducing the three core issues that are the focus of the new transdiscipline -- scale, distribution, and efficiency -- the book is guided by the fundamental question, often assumed but rarely spoken in traditional texts: What is really important to us? After explaining the key roles played by the earth's biotic and abiotic resources in sustaining life, the text is then organized around the main fields in traditional economics: microeconomics, macroeconomics, and international economics. The book also takes an additional step of considering the policy implications of this line of thinking

Steady-state economics by Herman E Daly( Book )

23 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Herman Daley's Steady-State Economics was first published in 1977, he caused a sensation with this then-radical view that "enough is best." Today, his ideas are recognized as the key to sustainable development, and Steady-State Economics is universally acknowledged as the leading book on the economics of sustainability. The book is a controversial treatise on the economics of global sustainability, which explains how to integrate ecological and economic concerns. The text has been revised and updated since the first edition was published in 1977, in order to include new essays and to take account of recent developments
Population, technology, and lifestyle : the transition to sustainability by Robert J. A Goodland( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

12 editions published in 1977 in English and Portuguese and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The local politics of global sustainability by Tom Prugh( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Local Politics of Global Sustainability, Thomas Prugh, Robert Costanza, and Herman Daly explore the political implications of ecological economics. They envision a reenergized political system based on a type of self-governance that political scientist Benjamin Barber calls "strong democracy." A politics of engagement rather than consignment, strong democracy empowers citizens to participate directly in community decision making." "Using examples of communities that are experimenting with various features of strong democratic systems, The Local Politics of Global Sustainability explains the crucial biophysical, economic, and social issues involved in achieving a sustainable world of our choice, rather than one imposed by external factors."--Jacket

18 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this controversial new book Herman Daly, a leading commentator on the environment, offers lively criticism of existing work on ecological economics and the economics of ecology. The theme throughout the book is about changes in perspective, attitudes and policies required to avoid uneconomic growth - that is, the impoverishment that results when the environmental and social costs of growth exceed the benefits."--Back cover

Four horsemen( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecuador's Amazon region : development issues and options by James F Hicks( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents a broad analysis of the Amazon region within the framework of Ecuador's national economic development. This approach is based on the observation that isolated policy analyses that focus narrowly on a region of concern generally result in policies that are 1) wrong from a national development perspective and or 2) ignored, unless the region in question has decisive political influence. The Amazon region presents some very special characteristics, some of which may be considered constraints, others unique opportunities. The foremost characteristic that conditions the range of options for this region is the extreme fragility of the region's natural resources. It also offers unique biological diversity. This potential may remain unknown and lost forever if the tropical rainforest is permanently destroyed through inappropriate land use. The report will aslo examine the area's development issues and policy options
Ecological economics : a workbook for problem-based learning by Joshua C Farley( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecological economics addresses one of the fundamental flaws in conventional economics--its failure to consider biophysical and social reality in its analyses and equations. Ecological Economics: Principles and Applications is an introductory-level textbook that offers a pedagogically complete examination of this dynamic new field. As a workbook accompanying the text, this volume breaks new ground in applying the principles of ecological economics in a problem- or service-based learning setting. Both the textbook and this workbook are situated within a new interdisciplinary framework that embraces the linkages among economic growth, environmental degradation, and social inequity in an effort to guide policy in a way that respects fundamental human values. The workbook takes the approach a step further in placing ecological economic analysis within a systems perspective, in order tohelp students identify leverage points by which they can help to affect change. The workbook helps students to develop a practical, operational understanding of the principles and concepts explored in the text through real-world activities, and describes numerous case studies in which students have successfully completed projects. Ecological Economics: A Workbook for Problem-Based Learning represents an important new resource for undergraduate and graduate environmental studies courses focusing on economics, environmental policy, and environmental problem-solving
God? Very probably : five rational ways to think about the question of a god by Robert H Nelson( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, a number of works have appeared with important implications for the age-old question of the existence of a god. These writings, many of which are not by theologians, strengthen the rational case for the existence of a god, even as this god may not be exactly the Christian God of history. This book brings together for the first time such recent diverse contributions from fields such as physics, the philosophy of human consciousness, evolutionary biology, mathematics, the history of religion, and theology. Based on such new materials as well as older ones from the twentieth century, it develops five rational arguments that point strongly to the (very probable) existence of a god. They do not make use of the scientific method, which is inapplicable to the question of a god. Rather, they are in an older tradition of rational argument dating back at least to the ancient Greeks. For those who are already believers, the book will offer additional rational reasons that may strengthen their belief. Those who do not believe in the existence of a god at present will encounter new rational arguments that may cause them to reconsider their opinion."--Back cover
From uneconomic growth to a steady-state economy by Herman E Daly( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herman Daly is widely recognized as being the most accomplished thinker on the growth-versus-environment nexus. In this collection of essays he discusses recent facts and arguments, fluently combining fundamental, applied and topical issues as well as responding to green-growth optimists like Paul Krugman. Acknowledging the precise and captivating style of Daly's writing, here is an excellent book for students of both economics and environmental science to start reading about environmental economics and growth. Daly gives his proposed alternative, the steady-state economy, hands and feet by elaborating a diversity of economic topics, including jobless growth, nationalizing money, regulating housing markets, facing the economic crisis and limiting free trade.--
Enough is enough : building a sustainable economy in a world of finite resources by Rob Dietz( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We're overusing the earth's finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. In Enough Is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O'Neill lay out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth - an economy where the goal is enough, not more. They explore specific strategies to conserve natural resources, stabilize population, reduce inequality, fix the financial system, create jobs, and more - all with the aim of maximizing long-term well-being instead of short-term profits. Filled with fresh ideas and surprising optimism, Enough Is Enough is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all"--Publisher
Building a sustainable and desirable economy-in-society-in-nature by Robert Constanza( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world has changed dramatically. We no longer live in a world relatively empty of humans and their artifacts. We now live in the "Anthropocene" era in a full world where humans are dramatically altering our ecological life-support system. Our traditional economic concepts and models were developed in an empty world. If we are to create sustainable prosperity, if we seek "improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities," we are going to need a new vision of the economy and its relationship to the rest of the world that is better adapted to the new conditions we face. We are going to need an economics that respects planetary boundaries, that recognizes the dependence of human well-being on social relations and fairness, and that recognizes that the ultimate goal is real, sustainable human well-being, not merely growth of material consumption. This new economics recognizes that the economy is embedded in a society and culture that are themselves embedded in an ecological life-support system, and that the economy cannot grow forever on this finite planet. In this report, we discuss the need to focus more directly on the goal of sustainable human well-being rather than merely GDP growth. This includes protecting and restoring nature, achieving social and intergenerational fairness (including poverty alleviation), stabilizing population, and recognizing the significant nonmarket contributions to human well-being from natural and social capital. To do this, we need to develop better measures of progress that go well beyond GDP and begin to measure human well-being and its sustainability more directly
