Description:

There are often no easy answers to environmental challenges. But asking the right questions leads to a clear and effective economic framework for understanding pressing environmental problems_from finding sites for landfills, to regulating chemical emissions from manufacturing plants, to preserving species diversity.Organized around these four key questions, Eban Goodstein's Fourth Edition offers in-depth analysis of important environmental policy debates, and equips readers with the tools necessary to understand these issues_as economists do.
