Environmental Economics
Subject: Economics | Topics:

Environmental economics is distinguished from ecological economics as ecological economics draws attentions to the economy as a subsystem of the ecosystem with its focus upon safe guarding natural capital. One survey regarding German economists found that ecological as well as environmental economics are different schools of economical thought, with ecological economists emphasizing “strong” sustainability as well as rejecting the proposition that natural capital could be substituted by human-made capital.
