The Green Economics Reader is a collection of essays, speeches and articles from leading green economists Green Economists, and also green professionals, and philosophers on environmental change, scientific theory and philosophy in Green Economics. Green Economics as a discipline is outlined and described, and provides the reader with well-thought out practical answers to existing and future problems by incorporating knowledge and complex interactions into an exciting and up to the minute understanding of the issues that the world is facing. The work of the Green Economics Institute (GEI) has given rise to the global movement known as Green Economics and the Green Economy. It was the aim and the achievement of The Green Economics Institute to turn the vision of a few campaigners and innovators into a massive global movement for change, one which has been taken up by almost all global transnational institutions and governments. This book is the first volume to bring these core ideas to the general reader and to provide an insight into the development, theory and features of Green Economics.Green Economics is based on a completely innovative assessment of the problems, options and solutions available to society, which is needed to deal with the challenges of the rapidly changing fragile and vulnerable physical and social environments, which we face. It is a beacon of hope for addressing the related crises of climate, biodiversity loss, species extinction and the global economic downturn. Green Economics also highlights the need for a progressive approach, involving the complex mesh of both social and environmental justice, as the key to solving the economic problems of the Age of Austerity.

The book explains the core ideas of green economics particularly in its development, theory and features. It addresses today's world challenges in managing resources which becoming scarcer. This book is targeted to general reader who wants to understand what green economics is all about. The book has been written in an interesting and informal manner. The topics were arranged in a holistic approach. The ideas were original and clearly explained. It suits the intended readers. The book has 6 sections. It starts with Part 1- Introduction, contains two sub topics; which (i) explains the core idea of green economics and the role of Green Economics Institute and (ii) highlights the 10 key values of green economics.

Before I read this book, there are many questions lies in my head especially on the new concept and theory. After I finish reading the book, I am clearly understood the concept of GE and the explanations of the theories. It makes my desire burning to pursue PhD in the GE discipline. I would agree with the GE concept as today we could still locate poor countries - with unequal opportunities given to women, youngsters and disabled individual. The concept of progressive economics and inclusivity are arriving at the right time. Now, it's the time to develop effective economics instruments which contains these two basic elements. The book has achieved its goal
