Towards Sustainability: Looking For Points Of Convergence Between Environmental Economics And Ecological Economics
This work aims to identify points of convergence between environmental economics and ecological economics. It is often assumed that environmental economics is linked to optimality while ecological economics is linked to sustainability. However, this view is too simplistic. In this paper, we analyze the relationship of these approaches to sustainability. This allows us to detect some propositions which, contrary to what is often said, would have been defended from both perspectives. From this we conclude that, despite the important differences in their conceptual frameworks, it is possible to find common ground in their action plans.
