I was privileged to know Herman Daly, often seen as the founding father of ecological economics.

Starting in the 1960s, he defied conventional economic theory to insist on the primacy of the ecological system and limits to economic growth. He introduced the concept of “full world” economics, arguing that the expansion of human economic activity was displacing essential ecological functions.

From Jonathan's list on understanding ecological economics.
