We introduce a growth model with environmental assets as a source of utility and an input to consumption and production. In this model we develop the Green Golden Rule, a generalization of the golden rule of neoclassical growth theory. We apply this to the ease where the object it the maximization of long-run or limiting utility rather than long-run consumption. 
Sustainable growth with environmental spillovers
In this paper, we apply the approach of Ramsey and Koopmans to the problem of optimal and sustainable growth. Under plausible assumptions, intertemporal neutrality implies that the optimal growthExpand
Intertemporal Welfare Economics and the Environment
I review the complex welfare economic issues that arise in environmental decision-making over very long periods, as in cases relating to climate change and biodiversity loss. I also consider theExpand
Sustainable Growth with Environmental Spillovers: A Ramsey-Koopmans Approach
In this paper, we apply the canonical approach of Ramsey, Koopmans, and Diamond to the problem of optimal and intertemporally-equitable growth with a non-renewable resource constraint and show thatExpand

The Green Golden Rule: Habit and Anticipation of Future Consumption
We derive the Green Golden Rule (GGR) in the Habit Formation (HF) and Anticipation of Future Consumption (AFC) frameworks. Since consumption is the key variable of GGR, time non-separabilities inExpand
Growth and long-run sustainability
Abstract From any state of economic and environmental assets, the maximin value defines the highest level of utility that can be sustained forever. Along any development path, the maximin valueExpand
A stylised macroeconomic model incorporating green capital in the framework of Viability Theory
New Zealand’s Treasury, as illustrated by its Living Standards Framework, desires policy that not only promotes economic growth, but also sustainability and equity. This paper studies how taxationExpand
A Green Solowian Model for Sustainable Economic Growth
This paper examines whether a non-instantaneous relationship between CO2 emission and temperature increase can affect asymptotic stability in a Golden rule context, when utility is not onlyExpand
An Environmental-Economic Measure of Sustainable Development
A central issue in the study of sustainable development is the interplay of growth and sacrifice in a dynamic economy. This paper investigates the relationship among current consumption, sacrifice,Expand
