In this fully updated and revised edition of an original text, Eric Neumayer offers an authoritative contribution to one of the most important questions concerning sustainable development: can natural capital be substituted by other forms of capital? Proponents of weak sustainability maintain that such substitutability is possible, whilst followers of strong sustainability regard natural capital as non-substitutable. This book assesses whether science can unambiguously endorse either paradigm and investigates to what extent and at what cost certain forms of natural capital should be preserved.
