Summary "In this book, Professor Uzawa modifies and extends the theoretical premises of orthodox economic theory to make them broad enough for analyzing the phenomena related to environmental disequilibrium - particularly global warming - and finding institutional arrangements and policy measures that may bring about a more optimal state in which the natural and institutional components are harmoniously blended. He constructs a theoretical framework in which three major global environmental issues may effectively be addressed. First, all global environmental phenomena exhibit externalities of one kind or another. Secondly, global environmental issues involve international and intergenerational equity and justice. Thirdly, global environmental issues concern the management of the atmosphere, the oceans, water, soil, and other natural resources and need to be addressed through a consensus of all affected countries."--BOOK JACKET
