About the Author

Wilfred Beckerman, an economist and Emeritus Fellow at Balliol College, Oxford University, has served on Britain's Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution and chaired the Academic Panel of Economists for the UK Department of the Environment from 1991 to 1996. He is the author of In Defence of Economic Growth, Small Is Stupid: Blowing the Whistle on the Green, Through Green-Colored Glasses: Environmentalism Reconsidered, and Justice, Posterity, and the Environment.


"Sustainable development has become a shield for special-interest arguments. Beckerman's careful critique points out [its] crucial ethical and economic shortcomings." -- P.J. Hill, chair of economics, Wheaton College. "Advocates of 'sustainable development' are unlikely to be convinced by all these claims; but they will learn a great deal." -- Cass R. Sunstein, Distinguished Service Professor, law school and department of political science, University of Chicago. "Anyone who believes that 'sustainable development' is a meaningful intellectual construct needs to read this clear and concise book." -- Robert Nelson, professor of public affairs, University of Maryland. "We now have an excellent book which carefully examines [the philosophical and scientific underpinnings of 'sustainable development.']" -- Donald H. Stedman, professor of chemistry, University of Denver. "Wilfred Beckerman brings wisdom and wit to his examination of major themes found in today's environmental policy." -- Bruce Yandle, Alumni Distinguished Professor of Economics, Clemson University.
