With his analysis the author challenges the value based approach to production. He outlines the contours of a richer theory, which is capable of accounting for physical and technological aspects without losing sight of their economic implications.' - Ulrich Witt, Max Planck Institute for Research into Economic Systems, Germany 'This book makes a fundamental contribution to economics, in that it deals with production theory from a perspective that integrates economics with engineering and science. It represents a far more realistic interpretation than the standard neoclassical approach and will act as a stimulus for further research in this area.' - Robert U. Ayres, INSEAD, France The economics of energy has been a contested issue over the past century. Although it has not figured prominently in mainstream economics, numerous alternative proposals have called for energy to play a more central role in economic theory. In this highly original and enlightening volume, Guido Buenstorf develops a new conceptual approach to the economics of energy which originates from recent advances in evolutionary economics.This basic understanding of economics is a prerequisite for integrating concepts and theories from other disciplines into the economic analysis, which is a ...
