Accounting for Mother Nature: Changing Demands for Her Bounty

Accounting for Mother Nature: Changing Demands for Her Bounty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the face of growing pressure on our natural landscapes and increasingly bitter conflict over their management and use, simply defending the status quo is not enough. Finding a balance between producing commodities, such as lumber, and maintaining amenities, such as open space, is crucial if we hope to promote environmental stewardship and healthy economies. Accounting for Mother Nature brings together experts with wide-ranging experience to provide a comprehensive examination of the critical debate around the management of scarce natural resources.

The contributors to this volume consider how unconstrained use of nature's bounty had lead not only to damage and waste, but also to divisive conflict. With a focus particularly on the American West, this volume examines the often-negative outcomes of government's management of land and natural resources. In turn, the contributors explore the role that private individuals and organizations can play in protecting natural and agrarian landscapes.

Through its detailed analyses, Accounting for Mother Nature makes the case for innovation within the private nonprofit sector and marks out new frontiers for research.

Book News Annotation:

Economists, political scientists, and other researchers and business operators from the US try to get more out of Nature by finding out her exact price. Their topics include a property rights approach to maximizing the wealth of nature, institutional reform for public lands, fishing for wealth in coastal fisheries, and why individuals provide public goods.

Synopsis:

Accounting for Mother Nature offers innovative and lasting approaches for dealing with the growing pressure on our natural resources and the increasingly bitter conflict over their management.
