Peter G. Brown: Building a Whole Earth Economy
Economics Without Ecocide: Building a Whole Earth Economy
Peter G. Brown, Professor, McGill University School of Environment; Co-author, Right Relationship
The economy is damaged and needs fixing. But Brown argues that we’re not asking the right questions to clarify what a healthy economy really is. Starting from first principles, he exposes antiquated and perhaps dangerous assumptions that underlie current answers to basic economic questions and analyzes shortcomings of many reform efforts. He recommends re-conceptualizing and redirecting the economy in support of a flourishing earth.
