The course introduces students to the field of ecological economics. The field of ecological economics is transdisciplinary by nature and as therefore applicable to economic, social, and environmental problem solving.  Students are offered a view to economics that differs fundamentally from the main school of economic thought known as neoclassical economics. First, the students are introduced to the vision that ecological economics offers with concepts such as full versus empty world, and circular economy. The students are then familiarized with different policy tools for guiding development towards a sustainable scale, such as Pigouvian taxes and caps on income and wealth. During the course students are also introduced to methods for measuring not only efficiency but also a sustainable scale and just distribution with in a system.
