About this product
- DescriptionValuing the Earth collects more than twenty classic and recent essays that broaden ecomic thinking by setting the ecomy in its proper ecological and ethical context. They vividly demonstrate that, contrary to current macroecomic preoccupations, continued growth on a planet of finite resources cant be physically or ecomically sustained and is morally undesirable. Among the issues addressed are population growth, resource use, pollution, theology (east and west), energy, and ecomic growth. Their common theme is the tion, popular with classical ecomists from Malthus to Mill, that an ecomic stationary state is more healthful to life on earth than unlimited growth. A number of essays in the first edition have become classics and have been retained for this edition, which adds six new essays. Contributors Kenneth E. Boulding, John Cobb, Herman E. Daly, Anne H. Ehrlich, Paul R. Ehrlich, Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, Garrett Hardin, John P. Holdren, M. King Hubbert, C. S. Lewis, E. F. Schumacher, Gerald Alonzo Smith, T. H. Tietenberg, Kenneth N. Townsend.
- Author BiographyHerman E. Daly is Senior Economist at the World Bank. Kenneth N. Townsend is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Economics at Hampden-Sydney College.
