A winning conclusion

Partha Dasgupta reviewed the interface between ecological economics and economic development in a new working paper "The Place of Nature in Economic Development". His conclusion wins the Sustainable Options Winning Conclusions Award for this week*:

Development policies that ignore our reliance on ecological capital are seriously harmful - they

don't pass the mildest test for equity among contemporaries, nor among people separated by

time and uncertain contingencies.

* A completely random award to all working on interesting issues spanning from Africa's development challenges to the beauty of sea horses in the Knysna lagoon. In the spirit of the Mo Ibrahim prize it may or may not be awarded.
