    Gaian Economics

    Living Well within Planetary Limits

    Gaian Economics is the second volume in the Four Keys to Sustainable Communities series and explores how we can develop healthy and abundant societies in harmony with our finite planetary resources. The editors address how to reduce our consumption to levels that enable natural systems to self-regenerate and to do so in ways that permit a high quality of life so that we can all live well and live within our means.
