About this book

Recently, the public attention has turned toward the intricate interrelation between economic growth and global warming. This book focuses on this nexus but broadens the framework to study the issue. Growth is seen as global growth, which affects the global environment and climate change. Global growth, in particular high economic growth rates, imply a fast depletion of renewable and non-renewable resources.

This book deals with the impact of the environment and the effect of the exhaustive use of natural resources on economic growth and welfare of market economies as well as the reverse linkage. It is arranged in three parts: Part I of the book discusses the environment and growth. There, Greiner and Semmler incorporate the role of environmental pollution into modern endogenous growth models and use recently developed dynamic methods and techniques to derive appropriate abatement activities that policymakers can institute. Part II looks at global climate change using these same growth models. Here, too, the authors provide direct and transparent policy implications. More specifically, the authors favour tax measures, such as a carbon tax, over emission trading as instruments of mitigation policies. Part III evaluates the use and overuse of renewable and non-renewable resources in the context of a variety of dynamic models. They, in particular, consider the cases when resources interact as an ecological system and analyze issues of ownership of resources as well as policy measures to avoid the overuse of resources. In addition, not only intertemporal resource allocation but also the eminent issues relating to intertemporal inequities, as well as policy measuresto overcome them, are discussed in each part of the book.

Media reviews


"Issues concerning the global environment, natural resources and economic growth are at the heart of a great deal of current political and social debate. Greiner and Semmler in this book address these issues within the framework of modern economic theory, in particular applying the techniques of intertemporal optimal growth theory. They develop an integrated framework for the study of environmental and climate issues as well as those concerning renewable and non-renewable resources. As a result they present a range of simple models that give policy insights and policy recommendations. This book should be of interest to applied economists, climate change modellers and environmental policy makers."--Professor Carl Chiarella, School of Finance and Economics, University of Technology, Sydney


"Can economic growth continue in the face of environmental and resource constraints? Or rather, what kind of growth can continue in the face of such constraints? And what kinds of institution
