According to ecological economists, conventional economics does not reflect adequately the value of essential factors like clean air and water, species diversity and social and generational equity. This introductory-level textbook is designed specifically to address this significant flaw in economic thought. The second edition of Ecological Economics provides a clear, readable and easy-to-understand overview of a field of study that continues to grow in importance. It remains the only stand-alone textbook that offers a complete explanation of theory and practice in the discipline.

Reviews for Ecological Economics, Second Edition: Principles and Applications

As ecological economics builds upon neoclassical economics, however, this single volume treatment of the relatively new field by Daley (emeritus, U. of Maryland) and Farley (U. of Vermont) goes beyond merely critiquing neoclassical models and instead incorporates them into the main body of the text, thus providing an introduction to many of the main concepts and issues found in standard texts on macroeconomics and microeconomics while also addressing the disciplinary and policy implications of the natural limits to growth. --Reference & Research Book News
