About this product
- DescriptionThis book undertakes the first general assessment of ecological ecomics from a Marxist point of view, and shows how Marxist political ecomy can make a substantial contribution to ecological ecomics. The analysis is developed in terms of four basic issues: (1) nature and ecomic value; (2) the treatment of nature as capital; (3) the significance of the entropy law for ecomic systems; (4) the concept of sustainable development. In each case, it is shown that Marxism can help ecological ecomics fulfill its commitments to multi-disciplinarity, methodological pluralism, and historical openness. In this way, a foundation is constructed for a substantive dialogue between Marxists and ecological ecomists.
