Contemporary research in ecological economics: five outstanding issues

Amitrajeet Batabyal ()

No 2000-01, Working Papers from Utah State University, Department of Economics

Abstract: In recent times, ecologists and economists have drawn attention to the fact ecological and economic systems are jointly determined. Once this is recognized, it seems rather obvious that ecological-economic systems ought to be studied as one system. However, because this recognition has been very recent, a number of important issues in ecological economics remain poorly understood. Consequently, the purpose of this paper is to identify and discuss five of these outstanding issues.
