9780521020763: Economy and Environment: A Theoretical Essay on the Interdependence of Economic and Environmental Systems

Environmental external effects are evidence of the inability of market prices to reflect the interdependence of economic activities undertaken within a common environment, and are an essential feature of all market economies. This book shows how external effects are produced by the interaction of the economy with its environment, using a classical mass-balance model.

Book Description:

A demonstration of how external effects are produced by the interaction of the economy with its environment uses a classical mass-balance model to prove the interdependence of economic activities within a common environment.

Review:

"The journal is attractively produced and contains both applied and theoretical papers and a policy forum section in each of the first year's issues....the journal deserves a place on the library shelves of universities and government ministries of planning and resources." Neil Adger, Nature

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Environmental external effects are evidence of the inability of market prices to reflect the interdependence of economic activities undertaken within a common environment. They are an essential - not a peripheral - feature of all market economics. This essay shows how external effects are produced by the interaction of the economy with its environment, using a classical mass-balance model. No matter how efficient the market may seem to be, the use of market prices to determine depletion and pollution decisions creates more problems than it solves. Far from sharing the stable or relatively stable equilibrium properties of most economic models, the market economy is shown to be forced by its environment through a seemingly chaotic sequence of states. Reliance on the market to accommodate each change of direction merely exaggerates the general instability of the system. The market solution to environmental problems is shown to generate only increasing uncertainty, a progressive myopia, and a heightened risk of conflict. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521020763
