Summary
The potential conflict among economic and ecological goals has formed the central fault line of environmental politics in the United States and most other countries since the 1970s. This offers a stark choice between prosperity and growth, on the one hand, and ecological degradation on the other. But as Daniel J. Fiorino examines in this work, the concept of green growth provides an alternative path that focuses on ecological and economic balance. While he focuses on the United States, Fiorino will also draw comparisons to green growth policy in other countries, including Germany, China, and Brazil.
