Valuing the Earth by Herman E. Daly

Book Description

Valuing the Earth collects more than twenty classic and recent essays that broaden economic thinking by setting the economy in its proper ecological and ethical context. They vividly demonstrate that, contrary to current macroeconomic preoccupations, continued growth on a planet of finite resources cannot be physically or economically sustained and is morally undesirable. Among the issues addressed are population growth, resource use, pollution, theology (east and west), energy, and economic growth. Their common theme is the notion, popular with classical economists from Malthus to Mill, that an economic stationary state is more healthful to life on earth than unlimited growth. A number of essays in the first edition have become classics and have been retained for this edition, which adds six new essays. Contributors Kenneth E. Boulding, John Cobb, Herman E. Daly, Anne H. Ehrlich, Paul R. Ehrlich, Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, Garrett Hardin, John P. Holdren, M. King Hubbert, C. S. Lewis, E. F. Schumacher, Gerald Alonzo Smith, T. H. Tietenberg, Kenneth N. Townsend.

Books By Author Herman E. Daly

Ecological Economics by Herman E. Daly Ecological Economics, Paperback (December 2003)

This work addresses one of the fundamental flaws in conventional economics -- its failure to consider biophysical and social reality in its analyses and equations. It is an introductory-level textbook that offers a pedagogically complete examination of this dynamic new field.

Beyond Growth by Herman E. Daly Beyond Growth, Paperback (October 1997)

Daly argues that the idea of sustainable development - which has become a catchword of environmentalism and international finance - is being used in ways that are not only vacuous but wrong and dangerous.
