Title: Turning economics inside out

Authors: Victor Anderson

Addresses: Green Economics Institute, UK

Abstract: This article sets out a view of the purposes and approaches of |green economics|. It looks particularly at the |boundary| conventionally drawn around economics, and at the |inputs| and |externalities| which cross that boundary, and proposes that these should be the primary focus for work on green economics, incorporating both ecological and social aspects. The article includes a brief critique of conventional environmental economics, distinguishing that approach from the approach of green economics.

Keywords: green economics; environmental economics; sustainability; externalities; sustainable development.
