Targeted at enabling the modern business student and practitioner to disentangle the complex debate relating to sustainability, this book provides the tools necessary to lead their organizations through the murky waters of current times and prepare for the challenges of the future. Sustainable Economics presents a clear picture of current thinking on sustainability and suggested solutions. Eschewing the linear “take, make and waste” approach of current business and manufacturing thinking, this book revisits the ecological models underpinning recent economic sustainability theory, and re-examines the consequences of modern ecological thought upon business strategies relating to sustainability.
