Andrew Charlton Examines the battle between environmentalists and economists In the essay, Andrew Charlton looks at the battle between environmentalists and economists over who exactly has the right view when it comes to making significant and positive change in the fields of economic growth and ecological sustainability. Charlton examines the rift that exists between environmentalists, who often see economists as those promoting market growth and greed, and economists, who often look at environmentalists as people who enjoy the lifestyle of economic prosperity, yet who only take the source of that growth for granted.

The battle between the two, says Andrew Charlton, has led to considerably deep political division throughout Australia, not only throughout the Australian business community, but also between the left and right wings of the country’s Liberal Party. In Quarterly Essay 44, Charlton argues that future generations depend on our current ability to develop solutions that both further the notion of human progress while taking steps to sustain and preserve the health and longevity of the natural world.
