The field of natural resource economics is a broad one, and the fourteen essays included in this volume scope out major landmarks that exist in this vast territory. The essays' subjects include an examination of media bias in the environmental/resource management debate; a comparison between lobbying efforts in the United States and in Australia in support of policies that benefit farmers; an exploration of the historical evolution of land and forestry management policies among developed nations; a look at the origins of resource economics in the US; a case analysis of Norway's experiences with oil exploration and recovery and the international marketing of this resource for cash; and a section contemplating Georgist perspectives on resource utilization and financing. This book is a robust and wide-ranging collection in its inclusion of topics and conceptual approaches to natural resource economics.
