Description

Natural Capital and Human Economic Survival explains what natural capital is and does, and how it is threatened. It also proposes some revenue-neutral policy options that could restructure the economic system to encourage investment in natural capital. Such policies would work, in part, by properly valuing natural capital resources and services. By helping to "get the prices right," within the context of sustainable ecosystems and a fair distribution of resources, they would promote true economic efficiency, equity and sustainability.Written by Washington area environmental writer Thomas Prugh and co-authored by several leaders of the ecological economics approach to environmental problems - Robert Costanza, John H. Cumberland, Herman Daly, Robert Goodland, and Richard B. Norgaard - Natural Capital and Human Economic Survival is part of a full-spectrum publishing project initiated by the International Society for Ecological Economics. The publications of ISEE deliver technical research to academic audiences, while also communicating ISEE's transdisciplinary efforts to policymakers and general readers through books such as Natural Capital and Human Economic Survival, textbooks, and executive summaries. Natural Capital and Human Economic Survival represents forward-thinking research, approaches, and solutions to environmental problems in an accessible, well-documented format. Readers and students who need more technical information are referred to ISEE's academic texts, Investing in Natural Capital and Introduction to Ecological Economics.
