Environmental Economics: Ecological Economics blog

Environmental Economics: Ecological Economics blog:

The Env-Econ blog introduces us to the Eco-Econ blog. Here's what they say:

"We just added the Ecological Economics blog to our ENV-blogroll....If you think we here are too mainstream, rubes for the capitalist elite, bought and paid for, then ecological economics is for you."

I read one post at Eco-Econ (on Sustainable Growth), and it seems that their perspective is to view the economic system as a part of the larger (and physically limited) ecological system of the earth, wehreas Env-Econ simply seeks ways assess the value of natural resources and find policies that allow us to extract the most benefit from those resources. There are ideological implications to the Eco-Econ viewpoint; first in my mind, it suggests that we can't grow our way out of poverty (my interpretation).
