Media reviews

'Economics continues to be one of the most powerful, yet misunderstood tools for environmental management and conservation. Jason Scorse's book will help anyone who cares about the environment move beyond simple ideas of money to understand how economic factors affect the environment and how the environment affects the economic wellbeing of all people.' - Linwood Pendelton, Director of Ocean and Coastal Policy, The Nicholas Institute at Duke University, USA
