Josh Farley: Transition to a New Economy
Transition to a New Economy
Joshua Farley is an ecological economist and an associate professor at the University of Vermont. With degrees in biology, international affairs, and economics, he has previously served as program director at the Centre for Rainforest Studies and as Executive Director of UMD’s International Institute for Ecological Economics. A recent Fulbright Fellow in Brazil, his broad research interests focus on the design of an economy capable of balancing what is biophysically possible with what is socially, psychologically, and ethically desirable. More specifically, he focuses on mechanisms for allocating resources under local control and national sovereignty that generate global public goods. He is co-author of “Ecological Economics, Principles and Applications” with Herman Daly.
