Book Description

First published in 1988, this book examines pollution and natural resources in relation to economic analysis. The section on pollution looks at areas such as the main problems in the field at the time, possible remedies and the environmental costs involved. In regards to natural resources, the book considers both the exploitation of non-renewable resources and commercial fishing. The non-technical introduction to the main problems set out in each chapter will appeal to the general reader whilst the formal models and more technical parts make the material equally suitable for more advanced students or those with specialist knowledge.
