Handbook of Green Economics Book Review:

The Handbook of Green Economics reveals the breadth and depth of advanced research on sustainability and growth while identifying opportunities for future developments. Through its multidimensional examination, it demonstrates how overarching concepts such as green growth, low carbon economy, circular economy, and others work together. Some chapters reflect on different discourses on the green economy, including pro-growth perspectives and transformative approaches that entail de-growth. Others argue that green policies can spark economic innovation, particularly in developing and emerging market economies. Part literature summary, part analysis, and part argument, The Handbook of Green Economics shows how the right conditions can stimulate economic growth while achieving environmental sustainability. The Handbook of Green Economics is a valuable resource for graduate students and academic researchers focusing on the green economy. With an increasing interest in the topic among researchers and policy makers, this book will set out different theoretical perspectives and explore the policy implications in this growing subject area. Covers the failures of the past, the challenges of the present, and the opportunities of the future Surveys 10 aspects of the green economy, including conceptualization, natural capital, poverty and inequality, employment, and finance Emphasizes the theoretical and empirical aspects of greening approaches that are policy-relevant

Powering the Green Economy Book Review:

As the world looks to the greening of economies to create new industries and jobs, protect the climate and environment and secure domestic energy supplies, we need effective policies more than ever. The rapid scaling-up of renewable energy deployment is a fundamental element of this process. Feed-in tariffs - laws that provide a premium rate (tariff) over a fixed period of time for each unit of electricity fed into the grid - are one of the most cost-effective policy tools for accelerating the transition to a more sustainable energy system. Despite their increasingly widespread use, the effectiveness of feed-in tariffs can be hampered by poor design and inadequate implementation. This book, from authors who have spent years working on feed-in tariff design and advocacy, covers: -An introduction to feed-in tariffs, how they work, and developments in key countries around the world (including in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, North and South America) - An exploration of technical and social issues - An investigation of effective design, and other support schemes - A blueprint for campaigning for feed-in tariffs - A compilation of further resources for those wishing to green their economy Written in a clear, practical style, this is a must-read for any policymakers, businesses, investors, campaigners, academics and anyone concerned with creating successful and sustainable energy policy.

Routledge Handbook of Ecological Economics Book Review:

Since becoming formally established with an international academic society in the late 1980s, ecological economics has advanced understanding of the interactions between social and biophysical reality. It initially combined questioning of the basis of mainstream economics with a concern for environmental degradation and limits to growth, but has now advanced well beyond critique into theoretical, analytical and policy alternatives. Social ecological economics and transformation to an alternative future now form core ideas in an interdisciplinary approach combining insights from a range of disciplines including heterodox economics, political ecology, sociology, political science, social psychology, applied philosophy, environmental ethics and a range of natural sciences. This handbook, edited by a leading figure in the field, demonstrates the dynamism of ecological economics in a wide-ranging collection of state-of-the-art essays. Containing contributions from an array of international researchers who are pushing the boundaries of the field, the Routledge Handbook of Ecological Economics showcases the diversity of the field and points the way forward. A critical analytical perspective is combined with realism about how economic systems operate and their essential connection to the natural world and society. This provides a rich understanding of how biophysical reality relates to and integrates with social reality. Chapters provide succinct overviews of the literature covering a range of subject areas including: heterodox thought on the environment; society, power and politics, markets and consumption; value and ethics; science and society; methods for evaluation and policy analysis; policy challenges; and the future post-growth society. The rich contents dispel the myth of there being no alternatives to current economic thought and the political economy it supports. The Routledge Handbook of Ecological Economics provides a guide to the literature on ecological economics in an informative and easily accessible form. It is essential reading for those interested in exploring and understanding the interactions between the social, ecological and economic and is an important resource for those interested in fields such as: human ecology, political ecology, environmental politics, human geography, environmental management, environmental evaluation, future and transition studies, environmental policy, development studies and heterodox economics.

The Routledge Handbook of Environmental Economics in Asia Book Review:

Problems of climate change, biodiversity and air pollution are clearly growing globally, but more particularly in Asia because of its economic importance and richness in nature. The increasing interest in environmental and resource economics applied in regions of Asia will make this book an outstanding resource to the existing literature, particularly in the fields of environmental and resource economics and the integration of applied content in traditional and agricultural development. At present there is no single handbook or text on the state of current knowledge in environmental economics in Asia or one which offers a comprehensive guide to students and academics on the subjects of environmental economics research. This book will help to fill the gap in the existing literature.

Handbook of Small States Book Review:

This handbook covers a wide spectrum of issues relating to small states. Chapters in the volume have been grouped under the three main themes of economic, social and environmental issues. The economics sections include chapters dealing with trade, finance and regulatory frameworks, while the social theme covers health, migration, population ageing, as well as overall social wellbeing. The environmental theme examines matters such as measuring environmental performance, natural disasters, the ocean economy, and the validity of the Sustainable Development Goals. One major issue is the definition of small states. As this volume demonstrates, generally speaking, population is used to measure country size in the literature. However, it clearly emerges that there is no real consensus as to the population cut-off point that distinguishes small states from large ones. While the approaches taken by the authors vary, in all cases the chapters draw practical policy implications for small states. The book can therefore be considered as a wide-ranging depositary of information on small states with the aim of deriving policy prescriptions, and thus as an excellent resource for academics, students and policymakers.
