4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David Reid on January 14, 2006
Format: Paperback
It is more than three decades since Schumacher and Daly wrote the seminal works of ecological economics. While there have been numerous contributions to the field since then, the ideas have remained outside the mainstream. The rising spectre of climate change might be enough to change that though. The threat that climate change poses is the basis for Simms' argument for a new way of thinking about economics. Simms argues his case clearly without using jargon.

This book is a very accessible read for anyone interested in the problems of climate change and some possible solutions.
