Overview

Environmental Economics is the first text to concentrate solely on environmental economics - the problems of earth, air, and water pollution - with an emphasis on both government regulation and private-sector antipollution incentives. It assumes a knowledge of intermediate microeconomics. Because of global interest in environmental economics, the author includes many international examples and places special emphasis on the way countries around the world approach and control their own environmental problems. Environmental Economics is ideal for undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in environmental economics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The best Environmental Economics textbook on the market. No question. Good for advance undergraduate and graduate economics courses. Organization and coverage of material is outstanding. Students need a calculus background. Good problem sets."--George Parsons, University of Delaware

"This book is the thinking economist's guide to environmental issues. It gives students with a passion for the subject the tools to think about environmental choices like an economist...If I were to teach this course again, I'd almost certainly adopt the second edition. Updating the examples, adding climate change, water and population growth, and adding sidebars with examples would seal the decision for me."--Eli Berman, UCSD
