Steady-state economics : the economics of biophysical equilibrium and moral growth by Herman E Daly( Book )

26 editions published between 1977 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 1,093 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
Ecological economics : principles and applications by Herman E Daly( Book )

33 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 966 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

Population, technology, and lifestyle : the transition to sustainability by Robert J. A Goodland( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 454 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."--BOOK JACKET

Ecological economics and sustainable development : selected essays of Herman Daly by Herman E Daly( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ecological Economics and Sustainable Development" comprises a carefully chosen selection of some 25 articles, speeches, congressional testimonies, reviews, and critiques from the last ten years of Herman Daly's ever-illuminating work. This book seeks to identify the blind spots and errors in standard growth economics, alongside the corrections that ecological economics offers to better guide us toward a sustainable economy - one with deeper biophysical and ethical roots. Under the general heading of sustainability and ecological economics, many specific topics are here brought into relation with each other.These include: limits to growth; full-world versus empty-world economics; uneconomic growth; definitions of sustainability; peak oil; steady-state economics; allocation versus distribution versus scale issues; non-enclosure of rival goods and enclosure of non-rival goods; production functions and the laws of thermodynamics; OPEC and Kyoto; involuntary resettlement and development; resource versus value-added taxation; globalization versus internationalization; immigration; climate change; and the philosophical presuppositions of policy, including the policies suggested in connection with the topics above. This fascinating work will appeal to scholars and academics of ecological, environmental, development, and environmental resource economics and studies

Ecological economics : a workbook for problem-based learning by Joshua C Farley( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 110 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
