Restoring the public trust : a fresh vision for progressive government in America by Peter G Brown( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why have so many Americans lost faith in government? Why have we given up on philosophies and visions of public life? One reason, Peter Brown argues, is the dominance over more than a decade of the right's impoverished ideas of minimal government. But as important, liberals and progressives - even after the 1992 election - have failed to offer a unified, value-based picture of government's mission that can restore public commitment to public life. Restoring the Public Trust is meant to fill that gap." "Restoring the Public Trust begins by outlining the mistakes of traditional approaches to public policy. Brown traces the history of the collapse of vision among liberals, and he gives a systematic, wide-ranging critique of conservative economist Milton Friedman's view of government's role. He also analyzes what is fundamentally wrong with centrist welfare-state economics' understanding of the relationship between government and the market." "Out of those critiques comes a proposal for an alternative model of governmental responsibility: Brown urges us to see government as trustee for citizens and the environment. In the second part of the book he shows how a trust conception of government avoids the dangerous mistakes of conventional pictures; how it offers a revitalized framework for thinking about public responsibilities; and how it sets a specific progressive agenda for action on issues from environmental protection to national health care." "Hard-hitting and forward-looking, combining public policy analysis with political philosophy in an engaging, readable way, Restoring the Public Trust is written for anyone concerned about the future of American government."--BOOK JACKET

Water ethics : foundational readings for students and professionals by Peter G Brown( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world's growing global water crisis has ignited efforts to reconnect policy to human values. According to Water Ethics, all approaches to managing water, no matter how grounded in empirical data, involve moral judgments and cultural assumptions." "Each of the book's six sections discusses a different approach to thinking about the relationship between water and humanity, from utilitarianism to ecofeminism to religious beliefs. Contributors range from Bartholomew, Ecumenical Patriarch of the Orthodox Church, to Nobel Laureate Elinor Ostrom and water policy expert Sandra Postel. Water Ethics will help readers understand how various moral perspectives have guided and will continue to guide water policy around the globe."--Jacket

Ecological economics for the anthropocene : an emerging paradigm by Peter G Brown( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecological Economics for the Anthropocene provides an urgently needed alternative to the long-dominant neoclassical economic paradigm of the free market, which has focused myopically#x97;even fatally#x97;on the boundless production and consumption of goods and services without heed to environmental consequences. The emerging paradigm for ecological economics championed in this new book recenters the field of economics on the fact of the Earth's limitations, requiring a total reconfiguration of the goals of the economy, how we understand the fundamentals of human prosperity, and, ultimately, how we assess humanity's place in the community of beings. Each essay in this volume contributes to an emerging, revolutionary agenda based on the tenets of ecological economics and advances new conceptions of justice, liberty, and the meaning of an ethical life in the era of the Anthropocene. Essays highlight the need to create alternative signals to balance one-dimensional market-price measurements in judging the relationships between the economy and the Earth's life-support systems. In a lively exchange, the authors question whether such ideas as #x93;ecosystem health" and the environmental data that support them are robust enough to inform policy. Essays explain what a taking-it-slow or no-growth approach to economics looks like and explore how to generate the cultural and political will to implement this agenda. This collection represents one of the most sophisticated and realistic strategies for neutralizing the threat of our current economic order, envisioning an Earth-embedded society committed to the commonwealth of life and the security and true prosperity of human society
