Markets, Social Norms, and Governments in the Service of Environmentally Sustainable Economic Development: The Pluralistic Stewardship Approach

Christopher B. Barrett


How might society reconcile competing normative criteria so as to both conserve threatened tropical ecosystems and vulnerable human populations in low- and middle-income economies? In this article, Christopher B. Barrett argues for a pluralistic stewardship conceptualization of environmentally sustainable economic development operationalized through interdependent markets, social norms, and governments. Dr. Barrett teaches in the Department of Agricultural, Resource, and Managerial Economics, Cornell University.
