Environmental and Resource Economics BEA308

Hobart

Introduction

The goal of this unit is to provide students with the framework and tools required to analyse critically many topical natural resource and environmental debates from an economic perspective. Basic economic concepts taught at first year are reviewed and extended to examine fundamental topics in environmental and resource economics. The topics include market failures, property rights, pollution control, management of fish and forest resources, environmental valuation and economic growth. The unit also encourages student to develop an appreciation of the implications and limitations of the orthodox economic framework. While the role of capital theory in analysing resource use questions is emphasised many other aspects of environmental and resource use issues are explored.
