Environmental Ethics and the Global Marketplace

Edited by Dorinda G. Dallmeyer and Albert F. Ike
Foreword by Andrew Young

Presents arguments for creating sustainable global business pracitices that work in harmony with the environment


Description
The global market is the largest and most powerful socioeconomic institution on the planet, and as such it demands that those who desire to benefit from it or those who seek to regulate it realize the economic and environmental consequences of their actions.

The contributors to Environmental Ethics and the Global Marketplace argue that the health of the environment is inextricably linked to the health of the economy, and economic strength depends on the preservation of environmental values. Ultimately, economic and environmental sciences must merge more completely if we are to arrive at ethically justified principles as the basis for national and international environmental policy process, enabling environmental ethics to move beyond academic venues into domestic and international decision making.
