Aspects of Sustainable Economic Development

by Gustav Dieckheuer (Volume editor) Boguslaw Fiedor (Volume editor)
Edited Collection VIII, 219 Pages

Summary

Sustainable development has become one of the topics in modern economics. Since the Club of Rome pointed to limitations of economic growth caused by shortage of natural resources and environmental destruction, western industrial countries have made efforts to avoid these limitations and to establish conditions for sustainable growth. This is the background of a collection of articles published in this book. They are focused on theoretical analysis of growth and environment, political activities concerning environmental improvement, and actual problems of sustainable development in Poland.
