Mappae mundi : humans and their habitats in a long-term socio-ecological perspective : myths, maps and models by Johan Goudsblom( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Never before in history was the interaction between people and their natural environment as complex and problematic as it is today. A proliferation of scientific research has yielded valuable insights into various aspects of this interaction from the angle of many disciplines -- the natural sciences, the social sciences, archaeology and history, ecological studies. The diversity of approaches has created a need for synthesis, for a study that transcends the boundaries of traditional fields of study. In this volume, authors from various academic backgrounds discuss the relations between human society and its physical environment in the course of history, highlighting a number of significant periods, throughout the world. The last chapter assesses our present situation and prospects for the future in the light of theoretical reflections based on the evidence from the past. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
Perspectives on global change : the TARGETS approach by Jan Rotmans( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes the structure, assumptions, philosophy and results of an advanced global integrated assessment model: TARGETS (Tool to Assess Regional and Global Environmental and health Targets for Sustainability). For a selective number of future directions, determined by different perspectives on how the world system functions and is managed, the model charts global implications in terms of population and health, energy, land- and water-use and biogeochemical cycles. By indicating to what extent these directions involve certain levels of risks, a circumspect appraisal is made as to whether the chosen future direction is sustainable or unsustainable. This integrated assessment approach has led to innovative fresh insights into global change."--BOOK JACKET. "The book will help policymakers formulate the strategies required for a sustainable global future. It will be of interest to a broad audience, from researchers and modellers of global change in science and social science, to policy analysts, decision makers and economists, and students of all aspects of global change."--Jacket

L'économie dans l'impasse climatique : développement matériel, théorie immatérielle et utopie auto-stabilisatrice by Antonin Pottier( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pourquoi les émissions de gaz à effet de serre ne sont-elles pas contrôlées ? La thèse interroge la boîte à outil de l'analyse économique néo-classique et pose la question ainsi : comment la théorie économique forme un cadrage mental inadéquat du problème climatique? La thèse identifie des basculements dans l'histoire de l'économie des ressources et montre un oubli récurrent du substrat matériel de la production. La fonction de la production, outil privilégié de modélisation des contraintes techniques, repose sur une méprise, comme l'a enseigné la controverse de Cambridge. L'analyse coût-bénéfice, seul moyen supposé d'avoir une approche non-normative, est privilégié pour traiter du changement climatique, quitte à modéliser des relations inconnues. La fonction des dommages extrapole à partir de préjugés partagés, et les controverses répétées sur l'actualisation font ressortir l'incohérence du cadre macro-économique en vigueur. L'analyse d'un article contemporain explicite le fonctionnement de ce rapport désinvolte au réel: les liens lâches entre la structure mathématique d'un modèle, les mots employés pour le décrire et ses résultats numériques donnent d'extraordinaires marges d'interprétation. Les rapports entre système économique, idéologie et discipline académique sont étudiées au prisme de deux symboles, l'homo economicus et le marché. L'inadéquation de la théorie économique pour traiter du changement climatique a une racine plus profonde dans l'organisation actuelle des sociétés occidentales, centrée sur le marché. Les effets bloquants se font voir aussi bien dans le phénomène sociologique du climato-scepticisme que dans la construction du marché carbone

Ontspoord kapitalisme : hoe het kapitalisme ontspoorde en na de coronacrisis kan worden hervormd by Bert De Vries( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in Dutch and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Populisme kwam niet uit de lucht vallen, maar blijkt diepe economische wortels te hebben. Vanaf de jaren zeventig werd de bestaanszekerheid in de rijke westerse landen ondermijnd door hyperglobalisering en de opkomst van het superkapitalisme. Door de ICT-revolutie kwamen de middengroepen extra in de verdrukking. Gelegitimeerd door een neoliberale ideologie trokken multinationals en aandeelhouders steeds meer macht naar zich toe. Daarbovenop verloren kiezers invloed door de overdracht van bevoegdheden aan supranationale organisaties. Verzorgingsstaten werden versoberd. De ongelijkheid nam negentiende-eeuwse vormen aan. Vanaf de jaren tachtig begon de financiële economie de reële economie te overheersen. Malafide praktijken en zeepbellen veroorzaakten in 2008 een diepe crisis, waardoor ook andere zwakheden aan het licht kwamen. In de jaren daarna dreef de eurocrisis de volkeren van Europa uit elkaar. Ondanks alle inspanningen is het systeem niet wezenlijk veranderd. Voormalig CDA-coryfee Bert de Vries neemt de lezer in 'Ontspoord Kapitalisme' mee op een reis door de ontstaansgeschiedenis van al deze ontwikkelingen. Bovendien presenteert hij radicale hervormingen die kunnen voorkomen dat het mondiale kapitalisme volledig in dienst blijft staan van een marktelite die er buitensporig van profiteert
