Abstract:

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.
