About this book

Space plays a central role in environmental and resource economics and yet spatial economics has received surprisingly little attention in the literature. This collection of Charles Kolstad's writings on spatial environmental and resource economics from the past two decades aims to fill this gap. The book includes the author's most important work on a variety of topics, including the hotelling model of spatial competition, as applied to resource economics, jurisdictional tax competition, particularly in the context of resource taxes, and environmental regulation, both theoretical and empirical. This collection from one of the world's leading authorities in environmental economics should be welcomed by scholars and students of natural resource economics, environmental management, agricultural and energy economics.
