Dr. Farley joined the CDAE faculty in 2003 when the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, of which he is a Fellow, relocated to the University of Vermont. Although he was formally trained in neoclassical economics, Dr. Farley is a renowned ecological economist working to integrate social, human, and natural capital into the way the world views economics. With Herman Daly, he co-authored a foundation textbook titled Ecological Economics: Principles and Applications which is now available in its 2nd edition. He has also co-authored Restoring Natural Capital: Financing and Valuation. Dr. Farley has spent considerable time abroad including several years teaching ecological economics at the School for Field Studies Centre for Rainforest Studies (CRS) in Far North Queensland Australia, first as resident faculty and later as program director.
