What Is Ecological Economics?

Ecological economics is an alternative economic model that challenges the current growth-driven system, presenting instead a model that recognizes Earth’s biophysical limits and embodies both social and ecological values.

Among other things, ecological economics calls for:

      Right-sizing national economies in order to respect Earth’s need to rest and rejuvenate and less industrialized countries’ need to develop in sustainable ways.

      Measuring the success of economies not by endless growth in production and consumption, but by increased human well-being an ecological integrity.

      Creating strong, thriving, interdependent local/regional economies and human communities that are rich in social ties.

      Shifting to a sufficiency-based economy in which the gifts of Earth are shared equitably; everyone has enough and no one has excess.
