Can we fight poverty and inequality while protecting the environment? The challenges are obvious. To get out of poverty is to consume more resources, almost by definition. And many measures to combat pollution lead to job losses and higher prices that hurt the poor the most. In Insustenable Inequalities, economist Lucas Chancel confronts these difficulties head-on, arguing that the goals of social justice and a greener world can be compatible but that progress requires substantial changes in public policy.
