Speaker: Dimitar Sabev
Bulgarian economist and journalist studying the interactions of nature, market, and culture.
I am an economist and journalist interested in “ecohomics” - the interactions of economy, nature, and culture. I have been working as editor, columnist, and award-winning investigative journalist at several Bulgarian media. I have also published two books in Bulgarian – “The Nexus of Exchange ” and “Earth Humiliated”. I develop a kind of "terrain economics", doing research and preparing expert reports for different environmentally related projects: for instance on social and environmental impacts of mining, monetary assessment of ecosystem services, fiscal justice issues, quantitative indices for regional development, sustainable forest management, feasibility of trans-border biosphere reserves, etc. Now I am doing a late PhD study on the contradictions of the growth- and marketing based economy.
