This is a free download of Chapter 6, "Ecological Economics Comes of Age" from Brian Czech’s recently released, "Supply Shock: Economic Growth at the Crossroads and the Steady State Solution". Combining a people’s history of economic thought with an in depth analysis of ecological economics, "Supply Shock" demonstrates how the relationship between economic growth, technological progress, and environmental protection can only be resolved through the development of a steady state economy. Includes a full suite of public policy objectives, amendments and reforms designed to ease the transition to life after growth.
