Summary
This provocative book explains why neoclassical economic theory cannot account for the costs of doing business in the global environment Annotation. The fundamental problem is that the neoclassical economic conception of the relationship between parts such as economic actors and firms, and whole market systems is totally incompatible with the environmental relationships between organisms and the whole ecosystem or the biosphere, says Nadeau (history of science, George Mason U.). Beginning there, he argues that there is no basis for positing viable economic solutions to environmental problems within a neoclassical framework
