2011 Conference: Building a Green Economy

Michigan State University, June 26-29, 2011

Economics has been called the dismal science because of ongoing debates within the discipline about the capacity to produce enough food and raw materials to satisfy a rapidly-growing population into the future. Given the added challenge of a carbon-constrained world, interdisciplinary scholars have called for consilience and an integrated theoretical foundation that recognizes the dependence of the economy on critical ecosystems and biodiversity. Biologist E. O. Wilson has called this the century of the environment, inspiring this seminar discussion about how ecological economics may contribute to a unity of knowledge for sustaining quality of life for future generations.
