For undergraduate students with a background in either economics or environmental sciences. Gain a deeper understanding of economics and the environment. The Economics of the Environment completely integrates economics and environmental issues, explaining how both market successes and failures affect the environment. This text also shows students how to measure the value of environmental goods, the use of these measurements in weighing environmental costs against the benefits of economic activity, and the implementation of policies to correct market failures.
