About this book

The tools of environmental economics guide policymakers as they weigh development against nature, present against future, and certain benefits against uncertain consequences. From reluctant-but-necessary calculations of the value of life, to moral quandaries over profits at the environment's expense, the models and findings explained in this textbook are relevant to today's more pressing dilemmas.
