Summary
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
