Summary

The Sixth Edition of this best-selling text introduces students to a thorough study of environmental and natural resource economics. In continuing the trend toward a more international focus, Tietenberg pays increased attention to environmental problems and policies in Eastern and Western Europe, China, and developing nations. In addition, an explicit integration of research and policy within each chapter connects actual examples to economic theory, giving students a context within which to understand the material.

  • Praised for its tight integration of economic theory with real-world public policy.
  • Incorporates new research and data throughout, including coverage of CAFÈ standards and environmental taxation.
  • Added coverage of the latest events and policies, such as electricity deregulation in California, recent developments in the Kyoto Protocol, and new technology in the transportation sector.
  • Boxed examples illustrate the economic principles at work.
  • International coverage is woven into the text.
  • Coverage of biodiversity has been heavily revised to emphasize overexploitation in fisheries (Chapter 13), and habitat protection in forests (Chapter 12).
  • Chapter-specific Web links have been added to the book's Companion Web Site for further exploration.
  • Online Instructor's Manual will make it easy for professors to plan their course.
