Especially in the neo-classical economic approach to economic development, there is a tendency to reduce every issue of concern to failures in market performance or the absence of markets. The social desirability of the outcome of the economic process is to be sought by improving existing markets and/or by creating new markets where until now they did not yet exist. In these days of classical economics market failures were seen as entry points for governments to ensure they were being taken care of.

We will restrict ourselves to the latter. Current macro-economic policies could potentially fail if long-term environmental effects are ignored. The risks are that global society will be confronted with environmental costs that are either irreversible (species extinction) or very costly to redress (soil degradation or deforestation).
