Ecological Economics for the Anthropocene: An Emerging Paradigm provides an urgently needed alternative to the long-dominant neoclassical economic paradigm of the free market, which has focused myopically—even fatally—on the boundless production and consumption of goods and services without heed to environmental consequences.
The emerging paradigm for ecological economics championed in this new book re-centers the field of economics on the fact of the Earth’s limitations, requiring a total reconfiguration of the goals of the economy, how we understand the fundamentals of human prosperity, and, ultimately, how we assess humanity’s place in the community of beings.
Find the Center for Humans and Nature’s own Bruce Jennings’ chapter, entitled “Ecological Political Economy and Liberty” in the newly released Ecological Economics for the Anthropocene: An Emerging Paradigm.
