Description

Intermediate Environmental Economics has established itself as one of the field's most authoritative texts, as well as one of the more challenging. It distinguishes itself from other books by presupposing that readers already have an understanding of intermediate microeconomics. Thus, this book concentrates only on environmental economics-problems of pollution of earth, air, and water-with an emphasis on regulation and private-sector anti-pollution incentives, and coverage of international examples.
