Environmental Ethics, Economics, and Property Law

Steven McMullen () and Daniel Molling

Chapter Chapter 2 in Law and Social Economics, 2015, pp 21-40 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract Conflicts between economic and environmental concerns are numerous, occurring at the highest level of academic methods and in many specific policy applications. Sometimes these conflicts are the inevitable result of trade-offs and differing priorities. Often, though, the conflicts run deeper, to the differences between the worldview of economists and public policy practitioners on the one hand and environmental scholars and activists on the other. To overcome these policy-related conflicts, we must work to bridge the conceptual gap between these schools of thought by identifying the roots of the conflicts and rethinking the institutions that shape our economic life.
