My name is Joshua Nelson, I am a structural engineer by day, writer by night (and on the weekends). My partner and I live with our 10-month old son in Seattle, Washington. His future is in our hands and I intend to make this world better for him when I leave than when I came in - similar to the campsite rule.

I hold no degree in ecological economics (yet), only a bachelor's of science in civil engineering,a strong math background, and a feverish need to read and learn. These mix together well to help me grasp the nuts-and-bolts of this subject, but also (I hope) spell out the concepts for those without a degree in economics. My blog is an avenue for me not only to learn more about ecological economics and the steady state economy, but to spread the words to others.
