Description

Grounded in economic theory, Environmental and Natural Resource Economics provides an introduction to environmental and natural resource issues and describes methods of addressing, understand, and even solve a wide range of natural resource problems. Using simple algebra and a basic understanding of microeconomic theory, it shows how the tools of economists can help design practical policy solutions to challenging environmental problems. The text is relevant, timely, and current-citing over 450 sources published since the year 2000. Using an objective voice and a theory-based perspective, the author discusses future environmental policy options for our nation and our world.show more
