Abstract: 
Unter dem Begriff 'Neue Ökonomie der Natur' wird verstanden, den Naturschutz und die Erhaltung der biologischen Vielfalt vermehrt unter einer ökonomischen Sichtweise zu betrachten. Diese Perspektiven werden zum Teil heftig kritisiert. In diesem Beitrag werden die Hauptargumente der Kritiker dargestellt und einer Einschätzung unterzogen.
Abstract (Translated): 
The 'new economics of nature' refers to the recent development that nature and biodiversity protection are increasingly seen from an economic perspective. Well-known examples of these developments are the TEEB project 'The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity' and its follower 'Natural Capital Germany - TEEB DE'. This economic perspective is heavily criticised, though. In this article, the main arguments against the 'new economics of nature' are assessed. It is shown that many of the arguments against economic valuation lack a proper understanding of the economic approach. If properly applied, economic perspectives can deliver important additional arguments for nature and biodiversity protection.
