Economists from around the world discuss Georgescu-Roegen's (1906-94) theories in a number of areas, but especially on environmental and energy economics. They address such topics as how long neoclassical economists can continue to ignore his contributions, his approach to economic value as a theory based on nature with humans at its core, his bioeconomics from a Malthusian viewpoint, a flow-fund analysis of production and time, a social and science epistemology for sustainability, the biophysical roots of enjoyment of life according to his bioeconomic paradigm, the role of entropy and energy in natural resource economics, and five conditions for sustainable living systems.
