This is a classic work dealing with environmental factors and their effects upon business and economic theory. The author challenged the theories that regarded ecological unbalance & profligate waste as marginal considerations. He recognized the damage and cost resulting from environmental pollution as one of the most fundamental, dangerous & long-run issues that humankind faces. Chapters deal with the costs to business from air and water pollution, soil erosion, the destruction of wildlife, the spoiling of non-renewable resources, occupational diseases, unemployment, and radiation.
