John Cobb & Friends Gathering – Herman Daly
May 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm PDT
Presenter(s): Herman Daly
Topic: A Future for Ecological Economics?
Herman Daly was the steady-state economist at John Cobb’s 1972 conference, “Alternatives to Catastrophe.” He and John together published For the Common Good: Redirecting the Economy toward Community, the Environment, and a Sustainable Future (Beacon Press, 1989, 1994). With assistance from Cliff Cobb, they created the Index of Sustainable Economic Welfare (ISEW), an alternative to GDP as a measure of economic well-being. Daly, emeritus professor at University of Maryland, School of Public Policy, served from 1988 to 1994 as senior economist in the Environment Department of the World Bank. Co-founder of the journal Ecological Economics, he has won multiple awards, but he has often faced opposition from mainstream economists.
