Based on a December workshop in environmental and resource economics, which brought together European researchers focusing on theoretical applications in policy and North American empirical approaches, this volume collects 16 refereed papers. There is no central theme to the collection; papers examine such topics as allocation of greenhouse gas emissions, endogenous transfrontier pollution, environmental policy and the timing of drilling and production in oil and gas, the environmental Kuznets curve, and other subjects.
