Babcock, professor, Economics, Iowa State University. Corman Scholar, University of Illinois College of Law Daniel H. The domestic price of labor is used as a numeraire.960 for fully stocked cattle pastures in Brazil.

The assumptions behind future discounting, which assume that future goods will be cheaper than present goods, has been criticized by Fred Pearce [65] and by the recent Stern Report (although the Stern report itself does employ discounting and has been criticized for this and other reasons by ecological economists such as Clive Spash). [66] Concerning these externalities, some like the eco-businessman Paul Hawken argue an orthodox economic line that the only reason why goods produced unsustainably are usually cheaper than goods produced sustainably is due to a hidden subsidy, paid by the non-monetized human environment, community or future generations. [67] These arguments are developed further by Hawken, Amory and Hunter Lovins to promote their vision of an environmental capitalist utopia in Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution. [68] In contrast, ecological economists, like Joan Martinez-Alier, appeal to a different line of reasoning. [69] Rather than assuming some (new) form of capitalism is the best way forward, an older ecological economic critique questions the very idea of internalizing externalities as providing some corrective to the current system.
