In Environmental Ethics and the Global Marketplace it is argued that the health of the environment is inextricably linked to the health of the economy, economic strength depends on the preservation of environmental values, and, 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. This cross-disciplinary volume brings these critical ethical considerations into the policy process, enabling environmental ethics to move beyond academic venues into domestic and international decision making.
