La pensée économique face à la question de l'environnement
Beyond standard competition between schools of thought, it is not by a contingent chance that environmental economics are framed by three main approaches: the neo-classical one, which considers the environment as a set of goods submitted to the general problem of searching the best allocation according to individual preferences; ecological economics, which tends to consider human economy as an ecological system; socio-economics, focused on links between economic behaviours, institutions and cultures. This is what can be understood through an examination of the conceptual structure of the concept of environment derived from self-organizing systems thinking. The same conceptual resource allows understanding what the intrinsic deficiencies of the goal of internalizing environmental externalities are and what novelty sustainable development introduced.
