Abstract
 
Description
Environmental Economics: Theory, Application, andPolicy's strong policy-oriented approach to environmental economics draws in current research and case studies to illustrate topics on the cutting edge of worldwide policy debates. The author introduces students to subjects such as biodiversity, climate change, air pollution, and forestry by presenting the actual data and methods used by experts in these fields. In addition, considerable material on emerging areas such as macroeconomics and trade, agriculture, ecological economics, and sustainability gives students a full understanding of the environmental economics field. The book's focus on basic economic concepts in the introductory chapters prepares students to understand these issues. Chapman does not discuss economics in the abstract: examples, historical contexts, and case studies are used to illustrate key points. And throughout the book, there is a heavy emphasis on social issues and ethics. *Strong policy approach - seen in its integration of practical examples and issues that are both domestic and international in nature - combines scientific and economic interpretations of environmental problems *Focus on core economic th - from Amzon
