Abstract

This paper addresses the issues of whether ecological economics represents a separate and distinct paradigm from environmental economics. The latter is taken to represent the application of the standard economic tool kit to environmental issues. It is concluded that the competing paradigms thesis is at best only partially true. Most important is the finding that there appears to be an emerging consensus around a new substantive research agenda which straddles environmental, resource and ecological economics. -Authors
