We just added the Ecological Economics blog to our ENV-blogroll. Their first post was on 2/27/06 from ecoecon founder, and early env-econ commenter, Dave Iverson:
We are hopeful that this conversation will take root, grow, and blossom. This is a multi-author blog, with my main role being web administrator/minor contributor. Some of our other blogs touch sometimes on issues of sustainability. Daniel O'Connor's Catallaxis does so, as does my Economic Dreams - Economic Nightmares. So does Steve Keen's Debunking Economics and David Jeffery's Okios [sic]. Sometimes we will cross-post from our other blogs, but mainly the Ecological Economics discussion will be here.
In addition to discussing Ecological Economics, we intend to compliment or counter stuff that appears ever-more-frequently on the Environmental Economics weblog. Note that Environmental Economics has its own URL. We can site-map too, and mask the 'forestpolicy' stuff that now sits on the URL for this trial version of this Ecological Economics blog. Or we may want to move it elsewhere and let someone other than I be administrator. Mostly I just want the conversation to flourish.
To see just how popular the Environmental Economics blog has become, try this link: http://www.env-econ.net/2005/10/blog_stats_stra.html
Just a wee bit self-promotory. I could have deleted the references to env-econ, but I didn't want to compromise the integrity of their post (smile). Anyway, check it out! The difference in environmental economics and ecological economics is not just semantic. If you think we here are too mainstream, rubes for the capitalist elite, bought and paid for, then ecological economics is for you.
