MINE – The bridge between environment and economy

  • Malte Faber, Marc Frick & Reiner Manstetten
  • In dialogue

A group of scientists at the University of Heidelberg is dedicated to the interaction between nature and economy. “MINE” stands for “Mapping the Interplay between Nature and Economy”. It focuses on fundamental concepts such as time, thermodynamics, evolution, homo politicus and justice, thus creating a new picture of economic activity within nature.

The dominant approach of mainstream economics, which views nature as a subsystem of the economy, is thus replaced by a broader and more integrative frame of reference.

In the working group around the economist Malte Faber, scientists from the fields of physics, mathematics, philosophy as well as economics are involved and contribute with their findings to the field of environmental economics.

A discussion of the findings of interdisciplinary environmental research over the last 40 years.
