The Environmental Endgame
Mainstream Economics, Ecological Disaster, And Human Survival
Hardcover ISBN: 0813538122
Nadeau (environmental science and public policy, George Mason U.) warns that humanity is currently facing the danger of catastrophic environmental change that threatens our very survival. Moreover, the current institutional regimes of international governance and theoretical tools of environmental economics available to us for addressing this crisis are utterly inadequate to the challenge before us. Fortunately, while human evolutionary history has instilled in us the characteristic that has led to this state of events, it is the very same characteristic which will enable us to solve the problem--the ability to coordinate collective activities in increasingly larger and more complex social systems and to externalize ideas as artifacts.
