This new edition of a classic text presents an accessible yet rigorous treatment of environmental and natural resources economics, including climate change and the economics of sustainability. Completely revised and updated, the fourth edition of Environmental and Natural Resources Economics now includes new figures and tables, definitions to assist the reader, and updated policy information. New advances in the science, economics, and policy approaches to climate change have been integrated into essentially all-new chapters on incentive regulation and global climate change.
This innovative textbook integrates economics with science and public policy in a balanced and accessible way that will be appreciated by students from disciplines ranging from economics and natural resources management to environmental studies and energy policy."Environmental and Natural Resources Economics is perfect for students who are studying economics within the broader context of a program in natural resources and environment. Unlike most textbooks in environmental economics, Hackett's puts philosophical issues front and center. He also provides extensive coverage of sustainability, a topic of growing importance that has been ignored by many mainstream texts.
