Nature and Wealth PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Nature and Wealth free pdf The world economy today is facing two major threats: increasing environmental degradation and a growing gap between rich and poor. Drawing on historical and contemporary evidence, this book argues that these two threats are symptomatic of a growing structural imbalance in all economies - how nature is exploited to create wealth. The root of this imbalance is that natural capital is under-priced, and hence overly exploited, whereas human capital is insufficient to meet demand, thus encouraging inequality. By adopting a Balanced Wealth Strategy we can overcome the structural imbalance between nature and wealth that is inhibiting innovation, growth and prosperity. See Edward B. Barbier's article in the Industry for Development's Making It magazine: 'Overcoming environmental scarcity and inequality'.
