About this book

Gardner M. Brown has been a leading innovator in the development of environmental and natural resource economics. This book comprises essays written in his honor by some of the most distinguished economists working in this field.

'I am glad this book has been written. Gardner is clearly too radical to get a statue and I doubt he would have the patience to sit long enough for the sculptor to finish. Yet Gardner's ideas really deserve remembrance. The editors have managed not only to cover many of the areas and methods Gardner worked with but also to find authors who loved and/or respected him and who have honoured him by providing high quality work in his spirit. The book is embued with those curious blends of curiosity and rigour, daring abstraction and yet painstaking attention to detail that are so characteristic of Gardner's work. It was a great pleasure to read.'
- Thomas Sterner, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

Media reviews
'This volume contains an excellent set of papers by top scholars in environmental and resource economics. These papers span the wide range of topics that characterized the extraordinarily broad and productive career of Gardner Brown. They bring current issues in modeling important environmental policy questions into sharp focus in a way that emphasizes Brown's seminal insights.' - Richard Carson, University of California, San Diego, US 'I am glad this book has been written.
