How the Nexus impacts policy
In 2003 two publications are epitomes of the nexus:
… there is little evidence of urban poverty being a significant contributor to environmental degradation but strong evidence that urban environmental hazards are major contributors to urban poverty… environmental degradation is more associated with the consumption patterns of middle- and upper-income groups and the failure of governments to implement effective environmental policies
Jack M. Hollander gives the other side of the nexus in: The Real Environmental Crisis: Why Poverty, Not Affluence, Is the Environment’s Number One Enemy.
