About This Book

When we look at the state of the world today, what is most evident is the fact that the major problems of our time– energy, environment, economy, climate change and social justice–cannot be understood in isolation. They are interconnected problems, which means that they require corresponding systemic solutions. Today's global economy hasbrought about critical distress forecosystems and societies and we have to go to the very root of the problems to find a way out.

This volume develops a synthesized interpretation of ecological economics integrating different levels: (economic) system, (business) practice and the (economic) actor. It discusses how changes on a systems level are connected to changes in practice and development of individual consciousness. Transformative Ecological Economics delves into the insight and knowledge from different sources of inspiration (thermodynamics, Darwinism, anthroposophy and Buddhism) as well as into an integrated story describing and illustrating the core ideas, principles and valuesthat characterize a utopian society anchored in ecological economics. Implementation of the deep changes demanded depends on our ability to write a new story, a utopian one for sure, but one which is in accordance with and based on the reality in which we live.

This bookwill beof interest to those who study ecological economics, political economy and environmental economics.
