A Good Life on a Finite Earth

The logic of green growth—both as issue framing and policy agenda—is compelling only if there is a political path to making it happen. This chapter considers green growth prospects in the United States from two perspectives. The first is the explanatory value of two theoretical models that have been influential in the field of policy studies: the multiple streams and advocacy coalition frameworks. The second is the conditions under which a long-term, durable transition to green growth may occur. These are to build a political coalition for green growth, deliver institutional reforms that enhance democracy, reduce economic inequality, and stress global action and interdependency. Only by linking ecology with economy in positive ways is there a practical path to living a good life on a finite earth.

Keywords:   policy change, green growth coalition, multiple streams, advocacy coalition, democratic reforms, climate change, business greening
