For the Common Good: Redirecting the Economy Toward Community, the Environment, and a Sustainable Future For the Common Good:
Redirecting the Economy Toward Community, the Environment, and a Sustainable Future

by Herman Daly, John Cobb, Clifford Cobb
Paperback (1994)

Daly (economist, the World Bank) and Cobb (philosophy, Claremont Graduate School) expose the outmoded abstractions of mainstream economic theory. They conclude, in particular, that economic growth -- the prevailing yardstick for measuring economic success -- is no longer an appropriate goal as energy consumption, overpopulation, and pollution increase. Instead, they propose a new measure for the economy -- the Index of Sustainable Economic Welfare. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
