Ecological Economics

Ecological Economics (collection)



Ecological Economics is the science of sustainability.  Ecological economics exists because a hundred years of disciplinary specialization in scientific inquiry has left us unable to understand or to manage the interactions between the human and environmental components of our world. While none would dispute the insights that disciplinary specialization has brought, many now recognize that it has also turned out to be our Achilles heel. In an interconnected evolving world, reductionist science has pushed out the envelope of knowledge in many different directions, but it has left us bereft of ideas as to how to formulate and solve problems that stem from the interactions between humans and the natural world.

All contributions were written by credentialed ecological economists. Authors are welcome to expand on or edit the contents list; please contact Ida Kubiszewski with suggestions.
