Fundamentals of Environmental Economics: Solving Urban Pollution Problems
IoES Professor Matt Kahn's new e-book presents a broad overview of the key issues in modern environmental economics with a focus on understanding and solving urban pollution challenges in developed and developing nations.
"Fundamentals of Environmental Economics: Solving Urban Pollution Problems" has several notable features. First, it introduces readers to the major ideas in modern environmental economics. Second, it focuses on how to incentivize for profit firms, households and governments to focus on "greening" our economy. Third, it embraces "free market" environmentalism as it highlights how capitalism can be harnessed to help to protect the environment. This e-book can be used in an environmental economics course or as a side reader in an urban economics course or environmental law course.
Professor Kahn stated, "I believe that many broad audiences will enjoy reading this book. It isn't a typical "textbook" as it incorporates many stories from the New York Times and applies economic logic in explaining these cases."
