Abstract

The concept of environmental capital is thoroughly entrenched in policy discussions but largely missing from mainstream economic curriculums. This article argues environmental externalities, climate change, and constraints on natural resources will constantly and deeply affect humankind’s future. The teaching of economics, especially growth economics, should stop ignoring them.

Keywords: Environmental Capital, Growth Economics

JEL Classification: E00, Q5
