The entropy law and the economic process by Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen( Book )

56 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Every few generations a great seminal book comes along that challenges economic analysis and through its findings alters men's thinking and the course of societal change. This is such a book, yet it is more. It is a "poetic" philosophy, mathematics, and science of economics. It is the quintessence of the thought that has been focused on the economic reality. Henceforce all economists must take these conclusions into account lest their analyses and scholarship be found wanting. "The entropy of the physical universe increases constantly because there is a continuous and irrevocable qualitative degradation of order into chaos. The entropic nature of the economic process, which degrades natural resources and pollutes the environment, constitutes the present danger. The earth is entropically winding down naturally, and economic advance is accelerating the process. Man must learn to ration the meager resources he has so profligately squandered if he is to survive in the long run when the entropic degradation of the sun will be the crucial factor, "for suprising as it may seem, the entire stock of natural resources is not worth more than a few days of sunlight!" Georgescu-Rogen has written our generation's classic in the field of economics."--Library Journal."-- from back cover

Bioeconomics and sustainability : essays in honor of Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book honors the late Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen by discussing his theories on a wide range of issues but particularly on environmental and energy economics. It is a dynamic tribute which extends his work to address the problems that the human race will face in the twenty-first century." "The book shows how Georgescu-Roegen constructed nothing less than an almost complete theoretical alternative to neoclassical economics. Although best-known for his later work as an environmentalist and his work on energy and material transformation, Georgescu-Roegen also made seminal contributions to the economic theory of utility and production and is considered to be one of the founders of modern mathematical economics." "This celebration of the contributions made by Georgescu-Roegen will be of interest to environmental and natural resource economists, as well as to social and economic theorists."--BOOK JACKET
La décroissance : entropie, écologie, économie by Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen( Book )

23 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in French and English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La pensée économique occidentale, en considérant le processus économique comme un mouvement circulaire de va-et-vient entre production et consommation dans un système clos, séparé de notre monde terrestre, a complètement ignoré la métamorphose de la science depuis la double révolution intellectuelle de Carnot et Darwin : la découverte de l'entropie et de l'évolution. Enfermée dans le splendide isolement de son modèle mécaniste imité de la prestigieuse Mécanique rationnelle de l'Europe classique, la science économique de notre civilisation thermo-industrielle ignore superbement les interactions réelles entre l'activité techno-économique, prolongement par d'autres moyens de l'évolution biologique, et les transformations de l'environnement planétaire. Le dogme économique de la Croissance est une abstraction qui trompe les gens et se trompe. En contradiction flagrante avec la perspective globale de la nouvelle science écologique du système Terre, l'idéologie économique du développement et de la croissance n'est en fait qu'une mythologie qui ignore l'irréversibilité de l'entropie croissante et refoule l'existence même des limites de la Biosphère. En mettant en évidence les rapports intimes entre la Loi de l'Entropie (le Second Principe de la Thermodynamique) et le processus économique, Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, le dissident le plus radical de la science économique dominante de l'Occident, a dévoilé une vérité proprement écologique qui s'impose désormais au monde entier. Les pionniers de l'économie écologique et de l'écologie industrielle s'en inspirent. La mouvance actuelle des "objecteurs de croissance" a fait de La Décroissance un livre phare."--Page 4 of cover

Bioeconomia : verso un'altra economia ecologicamente e socialmente sostenibile by Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in Italian and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La teoria bioeconomica rappresenta il primo e forse più rigoroso tentativo di articolare l'economia alle scienze della vita. Come risulta dalle carte di Georgescu-Roegen, egli intendeva, negli ultimi anni della sua vita, pubblicare un volume dal titolo Bioeconomics che ragionevolmente doveva costituire una prima sistematizzazione di questa concezione economica alternativa al mainstream. Com'è noto, egli non riuscì a portare a termine tale progetto. Il presente volume intende riprendere questa sfida, pubblicando una raccolta dei più significativi contributi di Georgescu-Roegen nell'ambito della bioeconomia (compresi alcuni testi dattiloscritti inediti), ma, soprattutto, cercando di offrire alla teoria bioeconomica un carattere di maggior sistematicità, integrandola con gli sviluppi più significativi che si sono avuti in tempi recenti in particolare nella biologia e nella teoria dei sistemi complessi. Il volume vuole inoltre recuperare lo spirito originale che animava la teoria bioeconomica. Questa infatti, per nulla incline ai facili compromessi legati alle teorie dello sviluppo durevole o sostenibile che tanto hanno affascinato accademici e tecnocrati, cercava risposte rigorose e coerenti agli ideali di un'economia giusta e compatibile con le leggi fondamentali della natura, ideali che oggi riemergono con rinnovato slancio dalla società civile

Sobriété, promotion de l'agriculture biologique, chasse au gaspillage ... Ces principes bioéconomiques énoncés par Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen dans les années 1970 ont été à l'origine de l'association communément faite entre ses travaux et le mouvement de la décroissance. Cette affiliation s'avère pourtant réductrice. La participation de Georgescu- Roegen aux premiers débats écologiques et son appel à une réforme profonde de la théorie économique en font un acteur majeur des débats intellectuels de la seconde moitié du xxe siècle, bien au-delà des controverses de l'écologie radicale. La pensée de Georgescu-Roegen, à travers ses inspirations, sa clairvoyance, ses subtilités, mais aussi ses ambiguïtés et contradictions, offre un cadre de réflexion privilégié pour enraciner la réflexion économique dans la dynamique écologique. Cet ouvrage contient par ailleurs la réédition d'un texte méconnu de Georgescu-Roegen publié en 1978, "De la science économique à la bioéconomie", et riche en enseignements dans le contexte des préoccupations environnementales actuelles. Sobriety, promotion of organic farming, the fight against waste ... These bioeconomic principles proposed in the 1970s by Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen led to the commonly-made association between his works and the De-growth Movement. This connection, however, appears simplistic. Georgescu-Roegen's participation in the first ecological debates and his call for a radical reform of economic theory made him a major player in the intellectual debates of the second half of the 20th century, where his contributions extended well beyond the controversies of radical ecology. The thought of Georgescu-Roegen, seen through his inspirations, his foresight, his subtleties, as well as his ambiguities and contradictions, offers an invaluable framework for reflection for incorporating economic thinking into ecological dynamics. This volume also contains the reprint of Georgescu-Roegen's "From economic science to bioeconomics", an

From bioeconomics to degrowth : Georgescu-Roegen's "new economics" in eight essays by Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicolas Georgescu-Roegen (1906-1994) is considered today as perhaps the chief founder of the transdisciplinary field today known as Ecological Economics, but that he defined himself as Bioeconomics . In his later years Georgescu-Roegen intended to write a book of this title that would systematize what he considered to be the most significant results of his work. This project intends to resume this project, publishing a collection of the most relevant Georgescu-Roegen essays on Bioeconomics, including previously unpublished papers
