Business within Limits

The book “Business within Limits: Deep Ecology and Buddhist Economics” edited by Laszlo Zsolnai and Knut J. Ims was published  by Peter Lang Academic Publishers in 2005 in Oxford.

The book explores the Deep Ecology perspective and Buddhist Economics for transforming business toward a more ecological and human form. It argues that business is an existential enterprise because its decisions and policies greatly influence the fate and survival of nature, society and future generations. Ecology and ethics provide limits for business within which business is legitimate and productive. By transgressing ecological and ethical limits business activities become destructive and self-defeating.
