Summary

Environmental Economics distinguishes itself from other texts bypresupposing that students have already had an intermediate microeconomiccourse. Basic economics is in fact not reviewed as in other books. Instead,Environmental Economics concentrates only on environmental economics -- problemsof pollution of earth, air, and water -- with an emphasis on regulation andprivate-sector anti-pollution incentives. Coverage includes internationalexamples as well, making this an ideal text for upper-level undergraduates inbusiness, economics, and the environment.
