Product Description

Review

'An excellent introduction to a rapidly developing branch of political economics ... the scope for debate is one of the things that makes this pioneering book so exciting.' Richard Douthwaite, Feasta, the Foundation for the Economics of Sustainability 'Ground-breaking ... I think her book is insightful, and contains many remarkable policy ideas' John-Paul Flintoff, The Sunday Times 'Here is a book which explains in clear terms the economic paradigm for the 21st Century.' Caroline Lucas, Green Party MEP and leader of the UK Greens 'Green Economics will be an invaluable aid.' James Robertson, Pioneer of the New Economics 'What is particularly refreshing in this account of a sustainable economy is the author's positive language and practical thinking ... At last, here is a serious book on economics which has a clear narrative and is enjoyable to read.' Green World 'It is a serious book written by the grown-up version of the kinds of people who are currently invading airports, chaining themselves to those coal trucks on the way to power stations and populating climate camps. ...I was convinced by many if not most of the arguments being put forward in this textbook. I found it clearly and consistently enough written to read from beginning to end without getting bored and I thought, at the end, if I were to be asked to teach a course on economic geography, then this is what I would turn to.' Journal of Economic Geography 'A fine reader for any college-level class in world economics and ecology.' The Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review, July 2010. 'Highly recommended to all budding 'economists'!' Brian Leslie, Sustainable Economics.

Format: Paperback
This is a bible of the underlying philosophy and theory of an inclusive, comprehensive ecological and social economics. It is easy to read, makes so many deep points and is so utterly sensible that it is bound to be unread!

Every university social science, politics, economics, environmental science and management department should make it recommended reading for students and staff. Anyone who wants sound arguments to question the present collapsing economic paradigm will find it inspiring. Bravo

Molly is an inspirational speaker and her book is a joy to read, even for non economists. She is one of the few out there daring to challenge the stranglehold of market economies and does so in a well argued and comprehensive review of current green economics. If your are interested in seeing how far green ideas have gone, this is a good starting point for more indepth reading.

Format: Paperback
An entertaining and easily readable book that is finished before you know it, despite its 211 pages. Not only covering what I would call green economics but intertwined with its amiable bedfellows - social and global (in)equity and ecofeminism.
For me - patriarchial society is a huge problem, and so is global inequality, but they can be separated from the issue of living a sustainable life in a non-growth and happy green economy.
Presenting the economy as a subset of the ecological world rather than seeing the environment as an externality is the big paradigm shift that needs to occur. That message is key and I hope the other messages do not obscure it from the naysayers.
The book is full of acknowledged references to other contemporary and historical green thinkers.
A breath of fresh, fresh air in economic thinking, and from a University academic too ! There is hope yet !
