    BEYOND UNECONOMIC GROWTH: ECONOMICS, EQUITY AND THE ECOLOGICAL PREDICAMENT

    Book ID/图书代码: 04289517C00341

    English Summary/英文概要: This engaging book brings together leading ecological economists to collectively present a definitive case for looking beyond economic growth as the sole panacea for the world’s ecological predicament. Grounded in physics, ecology, and the science of human behavior, contributors show how economic growth itself has become "uneconomic" and adds to a ravaging of both social and ecological cohesion.Guided by a clear moral vision that prioritizes sustainability and justice over profit, the authors provide a blueprint for an economy that replaces quantitative growth with qualitative improvement to enhance human welfare while restoring degraded ecosystems. They present solutions for many of today’s challenges, ranging from global climate change and biodiversity loss to natural resource depletion. This interdisciplinary work not only relates ecological economics theory to the most urgent predicaments of the contemporary world, but also pays tribute to the work of Herman Daly, a leading pioneer of modern ecological economics.Researchers and faculty studying and teaching ecological economics and environmental studies will find value in this unprecedented book. It will also be of interest to practitioners working to solve a variety of global environmental issues.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要:

    Awards/获奖情况:’Beyond Uneconomic Growth is a fine collection of essays documenting, supporting, and building on the powerful contributions of Herman Daly to the field of ecological economics. Conventional economists focus on allocation, or efficiency, are only now becoming concerned again about distribution, and have yet to realize that the scale of the economy must be compatible with, i.e. significantly smaller than, the biophysical system. Ecological economists start with scale, are centrally concerned with distribution, or with who gets what, and only lastly are concerned with efficiency. Herman Daly set the stage on which ecological economists perform.’ --- Richard B. Norgaard, University of California, Berkeley, US

    ’Herman Daly is the greatest, and most under-appreciated, economist of our time. This volume, in which other economists and scientists whom he has influenced celebrate and discuss his work, is valuable both as an appreciation of, and as an introduction to the field of ecological economics-which Daly spearheaded. It is essential reading for anyone who desires a human economy that respects nature’s limits and can therefore be sustained far into the future.’ --- Richard Heinberg, Post Carbon Institute, US

    ’Daly’s contributions to the still emergent field of ecological economics are constant references for our peers throughout the developing world as well as in the North. His courageous tilting at the windmills of mainstream economic nonsense inspire us to continue questioning: in whose interests do we continue on a perpetual search for unlimited material satisfaction? Daly’s conception is not only of a world restricted by biophysical limits, but also one in which poverty and deprivation are commonplace, and where Sisyphean efforts to maintain accelerated economic growth only exacerbate inequitable distribution. His vision of sustainable economic welfare shed light on other aspects of our existence which make it worth living. Thanks to Farley, Rees, El Serafy, Goodland and other fellow travelers, we are bestowed with an excellent collection synthesizing Daly’s contributions to our work, which will inspire our youth and their children long after we too depart.’ --- Peter H. May, President, Brazilian Society for Ecological Economics (ECOECO)
