Editorial Reviews

Expands the concept of sustainable to include not only the environment, but social relations, companies, profit, and competitiveness. On this level playing field, suggests a partnership among business, citizens, and government to set policy. Focuses on such aspects as environmental regulations and foreign direct investment flows within the European Union, technological change for sustainable development, socio-technological innovation, and a thermodynamic analysis.
