Environmental and Resource Economics BEA308

Hobart

Note:

Introduction

This unit provides you with the framework and tools required to critically analyse many topical natural resource and environmental debates from an economic perspective. The basic economic concepts you covered in first year are reviewed and extended to examine fundamental topics in environmental and resource economics. The topics include market failures, property rights, pollution control, global commons, management of fish and forest resources and environmental valuation. You will be encouraged to develop an appreciation of the implications and limitations of the orthodox economic framework. While the role of capital theory in analysing resource-use is emphasised, many other aspects of environmental and resource use issues are explored.
