Now published by M.E. Sharpe, this third edition text deftly balances classical cost/benefit analysis with the newer approach of ecological economics. The difficulties of assigning value and prices to everything in the field are explored thoroughly.
This extensive revision now features:
--More coverage (two full chapters) on the topic of global warming than any other text in this field;
--A new chapter on water economics, including water demand management and water pricing;
--A new chapter on environmental protection and the economy;
--New material on food supply and the food supply crisis, including biofuels and growing meat consumption;
--Expanded green accounting techniques.
