About the Ecocene:
An environmental economics blog
Ecocene: the age of the environment.
In the past, other issues have been far more pressing in the public eye. It is the age of today where the environment has come to the fore.
As our impact and interaction with the environment becomes more and more apparent, accounting for the environment will grow ever more sensible ecologically, economically, and ethically. It is an integrated part of one whole.
This blog is about environmental economics. Environmental resources are inherently scarce. Economics is the study of scarcity. By applying economic principles to environmental issues, we can all make the most of our world.
If you wanted to visit the eocene, you’ll find that time period here.
