报告题目 Economics in a time of sustainability urgency: introduction to ecological economics
报 告 人 Jeff Wilson
报告介绍 To demonstrate teaching effectiveness, Dr. Jeffrey Wilson will provide a brief introductory lecture to ecological economics. The talk will frame ecological economics as an alternative vision to dominate economic narratives in a time of sustainability urgency. Jeff will explore how understanding our economic system as part of a larger global ecosystem is critical for addressing environmental sustainability. From this perspective, Jeff will discuss the issues of appropriate economic scale, efficient allocation, and inter and intra-generational equity. In addition, Jeff will explore how redefining the ends of economics is critical toward building a new economic narrative.
