Environmental Economics and Natural Resource Management Third Edition

Environmental Economics and Natural Resource Management Third Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tools of environmental economics guide policymakers as they weigh development against nature, present against future, and certain benefits against uncertain consequences. From reluctant-but-necessary calculations of the value of life, to moral quandaries over profits at the environment's expense, the models and findings explained in this textbook are relevant to today's more pressing dilemmas.

The third edition of Environmental Economics and Natural Resource Management retains the application-based narratives and visual emphasis of the second edition, while covering the latest policy initiatives, following recent trends, and becoming even more user friendly. An expanded array of color photographs, diagrams, and other visual aids provide new perspectives on global environmental and resource issues.

The book covers topics including:

  • efficiency and cost-benefit analysis
  • natural resource management
  • globalization
  • environmental ethics
  • population growth and poverty.

This fascinating textbook will be invaluable to students undertaking courses in environmental economics, ecological economics, and environmental and resource economics. The book includes an online Instructor's Guide with answers to all the practice problems as well as downloadable slides of figures and tables from the book.
