Description

Contemporary society is dependent on man’s ability to work fundamental changes in the natural environment. In using resources to produce high and rising levels of income, however, effects are often produced that are incidental to the main purpose. This study, first published in 1965, explores some research approaches to the economic analysis of some of the key environmental problems, including water and air pollution, the introduction of chemical substances into the environment and the development of urban and rural space. This title will be of interest to students of environmental studies and economics.

Table of Contents

Preface; 1. Introduction: Five Environmental Problems 2. Water Pollution 3. Air Pollution 4. The Use of Chemicals as Pesticides 5. The Physical Environment of Urban Places 6. Some Problems Associated with the Use of Rural Areas 7. A Research Strategy
