gaian economics: living well within planetary limits – book by gaia education

The new earth into which we are moving has been called by some the ‘Ecological Age’. It will be characterized by a new understanding of our place as a thread in the Web of Life, of our interconnectedness with all other living things.

Given the pivotal role of economics in defining the nature of the Industrial Age – characterized by consumerism, unsustainable exploitation of the natural world and ever-widening wealth disparities within the human family – it is here perhaps more than in any other field that we need urgently to find new ways of thinking and being in the world.
