by

Sustainability, Economics, and Natural Resources #1: Economics, Sustainability, and Natural Resources: Economics of Sustainable Forest Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forest resources are an ideal starting point for economic analysis of sustainability. In this book, leading economists discuss key aspects of sustainability and sustainable forest management including complexity, ethical issues, consumer choice theory, intergenerational equity, non-convexities, and multiple equilibria. This systematic critique of neoclassical economic approaches is followed by a companion work, Institutions, Sustainability, and Natural Resources: Institutions for Sustainable Forest Management, Volume 2 in the series.
