The Nature of Economies

The Nature of Economies

Vintage Canada | March 13, 2001 | 208 pages

Jane Jacobs has spent years changing the way we think about economic life in general. Now, inThe Nature of Economies, Jacobs proposes a radical notion that has breath-taking common sense: economies are governed by the same rules as nature itself. With the simplicity of an extremely wise and seasoned thinker, Jane Jacobs shows us that by looking to nature, we can develop economies that are both efficient and ecologically friendly. The Nature of Economiesis written in dialogue form: five intelligent friends discussing over coffee how economies work. The result is a wonderfully provocative, truly ground-breaking work by one of the great thinkers of our time.
