About this book

The aim of this book is to provide an insight into the ways economists analyze the problems of environmental pollution and the depletion of natural resources. To this purpose, selected papers are presented. Part 1 is devoted to environmental externalities. Attention is focused on character, valuation and accounting of external effects. Part 2 deals with the relation of economic growth to nature and includes an investigation of the dynamics of this relationship.
