The study shows that there are strong links between the economy and the environment. These go far beyond the narrow definition of eco-industries traditionally measured. A good quality environment supports many sectors in the economy. Policies to ensure the protection of our environment seem unlikely to provide a drag on the economy, and may easily prove to be a source of new jobs and innovation, a driver of progress, and ultimately help increase the health of our economies and wellbeing of societies
Economics, Trollo. Real economics.
