Economists and the Environment

Front Cover
Economics has proved the most influential branch of social science in the 20th century. So what do the world's top economists have to say on what is widely perceived to be the most urgent threat to human existence: the destabilization of the environment? In this extraordinary book Carla Ravaioli talks to some of the world's most famous economists, representing a wide range of intellectual positions, on the connections between economic development and environmental disequilibrium. Her conversations - thematically arranged - are always compelling, sometimes illuminating, more often profoundly disturbing.
