Abstract

This brief article argues that the U.S. should use comparative law to foster sustainable development within its own boundaries. Because sustainable development law is a broader category than environmental law, the U.S. could learn from the experience of other countries with a wide variety of laws that are intended to foster economic development, social wellbeing, and environmental protection at the same time.

Keywords: sustainable development, sustainability, sustainable development law, comparative law, environmental law
