To Choose a Future: Resource and Environmental Consequences of Alternative Growth Paths

By Ronald G. Ridker; William D. Watson | Go to book overview
in chapters that focus on individual topics, and to that extent at least, these chapters should be viewed as somewhat independent, self-contained essays. More general results, particularly those cutting across sectors, cannot be fully discussed until all the pieces have been developed. The concluding chapter, which combines the results of the analyses of various sectors, is reserved for this more comprehensive, cross-cutting discussion. That final chapter also offers a summary and conclusion. This conclusion cannot be understood properly, however, without also understanding the steps that led to its derivation.
