Green accounting is a type of accounting that attempts to factor environmental costs into the financial results of operations.* It has been argued that gross domestic product ignores the environment and therefore decision makers need a revised model that incorporates green accounting "green national accounting,".The term was first brought into common use by influential economist professor Peter Wood in the 80’s. It is a controversial practice however, since depletion is already factored into accounting for the extraction industries and the accounting for externalities may be arbitrary. Julian Lincoln Simon, a professor of business administration at the University of Maryland and a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute, argued that use of natural resources results in greater wealth, as evidenced by the falling prices over time of virtually all nonrenewable resources.
