GOLDEN CANDLE AWARD: Dr. Herman E. Daly
OSS '04: To Dr. Herman E. Daly for his early role as a founder of the field of Ecological Economics, including his leadership role in the creation of the journal for this area of ethical study, and his body of work including Steady-State Economics (1977) and the most recent Ecological Economics and the Ecology of Economics (1999).
We discovered Dr. Daly's work when we made the leap from environmental scare mongering to his term, ecological economics. This great man, who spent most of his years in the University of Maryland system, has received every prize short of the Nobel Prize, and we were among those who urged the Nobel Comittee to recognize Daly and and others rather than the celeberity de jour. Below is his presentation to OSS '06. Please search for his books on this website, in the overcall scheme of strategic analytics, Herman Daly is “root.”
