    The Ethics of Investing.William B. Irvine - 1987 - Journal of Business Ethics 6 (3):233 - 242.

    Overcoming Energy Gluttony: A Philosophical Perspective.William B. Irvine - 2011 - Zygon 46 (4):915-928.
    Abstract As there are food gluttons, so there are energy gluttons. One difference is that energy gluttons are typically oblivious to how much energy they consume and the source of that energy. Their energy gluttony is a side effect of insatiable desire for material goods, which themselves are often associated with social status. Nonetheless, steps taken to deal with energy gluttony parallel those taken with food gluttony. Typically these fall into three categories: educational, political, and technological.
