Supply Shock debunks the myth of perpetual economic growth and refutes the rhetoric that “there is no conflict between growing the economy and protecting the environment.” Author Brian Czech, professional biologist and visiting professor of natural resource economics, describes in remarkable detail how the biggest idea of the twentieth century–economic growth–has become the biggest problem of the twenty-first. A masterful blend of historical analysis, ecological economics, policy design, consumer sociology, and political insight from government service, Supply Shock is required reading for instructors and students concerned with sustainability. Find out, for starters, why land was dropped from the neoclassical production function, learn about the trophic theory of money, and get a preview of the coming “steady statesmanship” in international diplomacy.
