Robert N. Stavins has been one of the most influential voices in environmental economics and related public policy over the past two decades. Economics of Climate Change and Environmental Policy brings together for the first time with an original introduction, key articles and essays on the economics of climate change and environmental policy written by Professor Stavins and his co-authors over the decade from 2000 through 2011.
