Synopsis: In an unprecedented way, this book relates fundamental physical and ecological principles to economics so that the detachment of current economic practices from physical reality becomes obvious. Sustainable alternative models are proposed. Almost all the material is derived from the work of great minds of past and present. Forgotten and ignored ideas are resurrected. It's a book for intelligent, educated lay people, students and academics. That his forecasting is more successful than many prominent economists' and that respected figures are turning to views long held by him, gives the author confidence that his contribution is of value.

About the Author: New Zealander Allen Cookson spent most of his life as a secondary school science teacher. A family discussion about the state of the world, and the poor prospects for future generations, led to a challenge from his son to do something about the present unsustainable practices. As it appeared to the author that flawed economics was a major factor impeding essential changes, he embarked upon and completed an economics degree. This enabled him to integrate economics and science in this book's analysis of the human ecological predicament. His wide interests include conservation and tramping in New Zealand's mountain country.
