Permaeconomics, by Emmanuel Delannoy

Teaming up with life"
Protecting nature through our economic activity? It is not only possible, but necessary. An industrial revolution is underway, based on a new relationship with living things. Emmanuel Delannoy is deciphering its workings, for citizens and decision-makers alike. We will no longer be able to say that we did not know.
Still obscured by the old world din, an economic revolution is underway. Founded on a new relationship to life, inspired by permaculture, permaeconomics maintains the richness of the biosphere, the fundamental basis of all prosperity.
As it currently operates, our economy no longer seems capable of creating the shared prosperity that we have a right to expect from it. Confidence is gone. Whose fault is that? If there are, of course, the excesses of an "above-ground" capitalism, excessively financialized, there is also the silent majority that lets things happen, overtaken by a system whose workings escape it.
Seeking to understand is already disobedience. To undertake differently, to produce differently, to consume differently, is already resistance.
New revolutionary models are already at work: circular economy, economy of functionality, biomimicry ... Permaeconomics is the new paradigm that makes it possible to make them consistent.
"This book didn't come out of nowhere. It begins with encounters, one of the strangest of which is one of the strangest. A few years ago, a small being, as humble as one can imagine, called the author to remind him of the true nature of the economy. ...] Economics is also a question of links, interdependencies, cooperation, projects, hazards and contingencies. The economy is based on humanity's use of resources resulting from natural processes, which are still and always beyond its control. Economy and ecology, in the scientific sense of these two terms, are inseparable. Human activities depend on the biosphere, which is affected, adapts and responds in return. The strongest message from the insect, since it was an insect, is that the real issue is not to 'bring biodiversity into the economy' but, on the contrary, to 'put the economy back into biodiversity'; in other words, to make the flows of matter and energy from human activities compatible with those of the biosphere.
This book is for you. It is not for those who do evil. They have understood how to hijack the wheels of the economy for their own benefit. It is for those around you who would be tempted to give up, thinking they can do nothing. It is for those who, whether producers or consumers, are looking for ways to contribute to this new economy. It is for those who have understood that the economy is not a dogma, but a set of means to be used wisely. »
Emmanuel Delannoy, entrepreneur, lecturer, author, contributed to the construction of the French Biodiversity Agency and was entrusted by the government with a mission on the uses of biodiversity.

In particular, he has contributed to the Dictionary of Ecological Thought (PUF).
