Sustainability, Economics, and Natural Resources #2: Institutions, Sustainability, and Natural Resources: Institutions for Sustainable Forest Management Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This work proposes that new economic theory, rather than a new public policy based on old theory, is needed to guide humanity toward sustainability. The book includes the ideas from old as well as new institutional economics, discussed in detail by leading experts in the field. This book follows a companion work, 'Economics, Sustainability, and Natural Resources: Economics of Sustainable Forest Management', volume 1 of the series.
