In contemporary times, ecologists and economists have drawn attention to the fact that ecological and economic systems are jointly determined. Once this is recognized, it seems rather clear that ecological-economic systems ought to be analyzed as one system. Nevertheless, because this recognition has been very recent, a number of important issues in ecological economics remain inadequately understood. As such, the purpose of this paper is to identify and discuss five of these outstanding issues.
