Abstract

Economists have neglected the nature of property rights as a policy variable for mitigating the inefficiencies, inequities and un-sustainability of capitalism. Ecological property rights are described that provide a way for introducing prosperity without growth to sustain both society and the environment.

Keywords: Ecological capitalism, Property rights, Surplus profits, Universal income
