CAIRO BOOKS's Description
In its fifth edition, Economics and the Environment provides a rigorous and
comprehensive presentation of the "standard analysis," including the
property-rights basis of environmental problems, efficient pollution control,
benefit-estimation procedures, and incentive based procedures. Broader topics
such as the ethical foundations of environmental economics, an introduction to
ecological economics, a safety-based approach to controlling pollution, the
economic critique of growth, the potential for government failure, the
promotion of "clean technology," and opportunities for sustainable development
in poor countries are all covered throughout the text.
