This book presents a new perspective on the link between economic growth and environmental change. All the key issues in environmental economics are covered, including:
* industry, creation and environmental change
* air, water and toxic pollution
* economic growth and the limits of environmental regulation
* ethics and the limits of environmental economics.
The central thesis is that whilst new industries are necessary for economic growth, their development creates new environmental problems which become difficult to reverse. An alternative approach, 'steady-state economics', based on the concept of ethical commitment, is put forward as a possible alternative to a high-growth, environmentally destructive economy. Providing a welcome alternative to conventional, neoclassical microeconomic thought on environmental issues, this will be vital reading for students of environmental economics and related subjects.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Douglas Booth's pioneering book is an example of the kind of intellectual effort we will need if we are to make the transition to a sustainable way of life."
-"Review of Social Economy
"Booth puts forward th case for a new, ethical approach to evaluating environmental questions, arguing that if human and biotic life are viewed as valuable in their own right, then we need an alternative to cost-benefit analysis, an alternative he calls steady-state economics, based on the concept of ethical commitment."
