Economics and Ecosystem Services

Over the last 50 years, nearly 60% of the worlds ecosystem services have been degraded by human impact. Among objective underlying reasons, we can identify two common ones: the imperfection of the traditional market model and the inefficiency of national policy. One grave problem is a lack of price/value or a severely underestimated value for the overwhelming majority of ecoservices.
