ECO 337: Environmental Economics

Prerequisite: ECO 231

This course will study the fascinating and growing field of environmental and natural resource economics. All the topics covered (e.g., property rights and externalities, regulation and pollution control) will be examined as part of the general focus on the problem of economic growth in the presence of limited environmental and natural resources. We will employ the tools from `basic' microeconomic theory to study the relationship between the economy and the natural environment
