and Social Practices

from Edward Elgar Publishing
The editors and contributors to this volume argue that traditional policy approaches to reduce human impacts on the environment through technological change – for example, emphasizing resource efficiency and the development of renewable energy sources – are insufficient to meet the most pressing sustainability challenges of the twenty-first century. Instead, we must fundamentally reconfigure our lifestyles and social institutions if we are to make the transition toward a truly sustainable future.
GDAE researcher Jonathan Harris authors a chapter on the macroeconomics of development without throughput growth, arguing for investment in energy-conserving, human, and natural capital.
