April 12, 1993 – Enviro-economics gaining respectability? Er…

The good ship “System” is always about to right itself, set out on the right course. Our lords and masters are always just about to take notice of the sage advice of sages. Oh yes.
On this day 24 years ago, Brent Davis, then director of trade and policy research with the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, wrote a piece about ‘enviro-economics’ in the Canberra Times.Thanks to the wonders of digitised newspapers, you can read it (follow the link).
Davis, B. 1993. Enviro-economics gathers respectability. Canberra Times, 12 April, p.11.

Thank goodness he was right, or we would all be toast, wouldn’t we?
