Summary
Synopsis: In this important book, a host of noted environmentalists and business ethicists examine ethical issues in consumption from the points of view of environmental sustainability, economic development, and free enterprise. These issues are at the forefront of international concerns about global legislation and regulation. The contributors challenge the reader to think carefully about how environmental sustainability, global economic development, and free enterprise might or might not be compatible values for ourselves and future generations. It is an essential book for students and scholars of business ethics, environmental ethics, public policy, and economic development
