Growth Management for a Sustainable Future : Ecological Sustainability as the New Growth Management Focus for the 21st Century
Gabor ZovanyiISBN: 0275961354;
Previous books on growth management in the United States favor balanced growth, which suggests that growth and environmental protection represent equally legitimate objectives. Taking issue with the balanced growth position, this book argues that furthergrowth is unsustainable, and that growth management must focus on ensuring ecological sustainability. The book illustrates how the growth management movement represents an institutionalized form of ongoing growth accommodation which is incongruous with sustainable behavior, argues that legal protections afforded property rights do not present insurmountable obstacles to stopping growth, and provides operational measures of ecological sustainability to guide future growth management programs.
