ECN 3080. Environmental Economics (3 credits)


This course examines the implications of economic theory and how it relates to the environment and environmental activity. The continuing conflict between market forces and environmental integrity will be the centerpiece of discussion, and the course will explain how economic theory views the relationship between economic activity and the natural world. Special emphasis is given to developing and implementing tools to evaluate environmental policies. Other topics include cost-benefit analysis, measurement of the benefits of non-market goods and costs of regulations, and the evaluation of the impact of regulations in areas such as financial markets, workplace health and safety, consumer product safety, and other contexts. PREREQ: ECN 2020 .
