Environmental Economics

The economics of the green movement is an important area for policy makers; there is no free lunch. Costs need to be measured in money, naturally; but other concerns, such as lives lost, need to be considered.

Human Scale Revisited: A New Look at the Classic Case for a Decentralist Future

Kirkpatrick Sale

Human Scale Revisited: A New Look at the Classic Case for a Decentralist Future by Kirkpatrick Sale

Big government, big business, big everything: Kirkpatrick Sale took giantism to task in his 1980 classic, Human Scale, and today takes a new look at how the crises that imperil modern America are the inevitable result of bigness grown out of control-and what can be done about it.

The result is a keenly updated, carefully argued case for bringing human endeavors back to scales we can comprehend and manage-whether in our built environments, our politics, our business endeavors, our energy plans, or our mobility.

Sale walks readers back through history to a time when buildings were scaled to the...

Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist

Kate Raworth

Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist by Kate Raworth

Economics is the mother tongue of public policy. It dominates our decision-making for the future, guides multi-billion-dollar investments, and shapes our responses to climate change, inequality, and other environmental and social challenges that define our times.

Pity then, or more like disaster, that its fundamental ideas are centuries out of date yet are still taught in college courses worldwide and still used to address critical issues in government and business alike.

That's why it is time, says renegade economist Kate Raworth, to revise our economic thinking for the 21st century. In Doughnut...

Mining in Africa: Are Local Communities Better Off?

Punam Chuhan-Pole & Andrew L. Dabalen

Mining in Africa: Are Local Communities Better Off? by Punam Chuhan-Pole & Andrew L. DabalenThis study focuses on the local and regional impact of large-scale gold mining in Africa in the context of a mineral boom in the region since 2000. It contributes to filling a gap in the literature on the welfare effects of mineral resources, which, until now, has concentrated more on the national or macroeconomic impacts. Economists have long been intrigued by the paradox that a rich endowment of natural resources may retard economic performance, particularly in the case of mineral-exporting developing countries. Studies of this phenomenon, known as the "resource curse,†? examine the economy-wide...

Reinventing Prosperity: Managing Economic Growth to Reduce Unemployment, Inequality and Climate Change

Graeme Maxton & Jorgen Randers

Reinventing Prosperity: Managing Economic Growth to Reduce Unemployment, Inequality and Climate Change by Graeme Maxton & Jorgen RandersThe biggest challenges facing human wellbeing today are widening income inequality, continuing global poverty, and environmental degradation. Luckily, these problems are simple to solve — in theory.

In practice, however, they are much harder to solve, because we are required to come up with solutions that are acceptable to a political majority in the rich world. Most of the commonly proposed “solutions” are simply not acceptable to most people. Many of these proposed solutions — like stopping the use of fossil fuels — require a sacrifice today in order to obtain an uncertain advantage in the...

A Good Disruption: Redefining Growth in the Twenty-First Century

Martin Stuchtey & Per-Anders Enkvist & Klaus Zumwinkel

A Good Disruption: Redefining Growth in the Twenty-First Century by Martin Stuchtey & Per-Anders Enkvist & Klaus ZumwinkelDisruptive technology is one of the defining economic trends of our age, transforming one major industry after another. But what is the true impact of such disruption on the world's economies, and does it really have the potential to solve global problems such as low growth, inequality and environmental degradation? The provocative answer is that such disruption could indeed solve many of these issues, but that it won't... at least, not on its current trajectory.

A Good Disruption highlights some of the huge costs that are at stake, and argues that managing such disruption will be the defining...

Tree-Based Production Systems for Africa's Drylands

Frank Place & Dennis Garrity

Tree-Based Production Systems for Africa's Drylands by Frank Place & Dennis GarrityTree-based production systems have enormous potential to reduce vulnerability and increase the resilience of households living in dryland regions of Sub-Saharan Africa. Trees are key providers of biomass, which is critical for many livelihood needs. Wood from trees is the leading source of energy in many dryland countries and is an important construction material. Foliage and pods from trees and shrubs are the most important source of feed for camels and goats, which are the dominant livestock species in the more arid parts of the drylands. Trees and shrubs offer enhanced sources of the organic...

Energy Efficiency: Building a Clean, Secure Economy

James Sweeney

Energy Efficiency: Building a Clean, Secure Economy by James SweeneyThe entire world, especially the United States, is in the midst of an energy revolution.

In this book, Jim Sweeney examines the energy policies and practices of the past forty years and their impact on three crucial systems: the economy, the environment, and national security. He shows how energy-efficiency contributions to the country's overall energy situation have been more powerful than all the increases in the domestic production of oil, gas, coal, geothermal...

Surviving the Future: Culture, Carnival and Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy

David Fleming & Shaun Chamberlin

Surviving the Future: Culture, Carnival and Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy by David Fleming & Shaun Chamberlin

Surviving the Future is a story drawn from the fertile ground of the late David Fleming's extraordinary Lean Logic: A Dictionary for the Future and How to Survive It. That hardback consists of four hundred and seventy-two interlinked dictionary entries, inviting readers to choose their own path through its radical vision.

Recognizing that Lean Logic's sheer size and unusual structure can be daunting, Fleming's long-time collaborator Shaun Chamberlin has selected and edited one of these potential narratives to create Surviving the Future. The content, rare insights, and uniquely enjoyably writing...
