  • Peter M. Haas

Abstract

This essay reviews Malthusian themes in current discourses about resource scarcity and environmental security. It argues that these themes are unjustifiably dominant in current discussions, and suggests that increased attention should be to paid to discourses revolving around Sustainable Development, as well as on institutional designs that can influence patterns of resource consumption and collective responses to perceptions of resource scarcity Copyright (c) 2002 Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
