Book Summary:

Too often, economics disassociates humans from nature, the economy from the biosphere that contains it, and sustainability from fairness. When economists do engage with environmental issues, they typically reduce their analysis to a science of efficiency that leaves aside issues of distributional analysis and justice. The aim of this lucid textbook is to provide a framework that prioritizes human well-being within the limits of the biosphere, and to rethink economic analysis and policy in the light of not just efficiency but equity. Leading economist Éloi Laurent systematically ties together sustainability and justice issues in covering a wide range of topics, from biodiversity and ecosystems, energy and climate change, environmental health and environmental justice, to new indicators of well-being and sustainability beyond GDP and growth, social-ecological transition, and sustainable urban systems. This book equips readers with ideas and tools from various disciplines alongside economics, such as history, political science, and philosophy, and invites them to apply those insights in order to understand and eventually tackle pressing twenty-first-century challenges. It will be an invaluable resource for students of environmental economics and policy, and sustainable development.

Book Summary:

Can economic growth be environmentally sustainable? This crucial question goes right to the heart of environmental economics and is a matter of increasing concern globally. The first edition of this popular title was the first introductory textbook in environmental economics that truly attempted to integrate economics with not only the environment but also ecology. This new version builds and improves upon the popular formula with new material, new examples, new pedagogical features and new questions for discussion. With international case-studies and examples, this book will prove an excellent choice for introducing both students and other academics to the world of environmental economics.

Book Summary:

The use of legislation by EU governments to define environmental standards for industry has been criticised for its poor track record in arresting the decline in the quality of Europe's environment. Environmental economists in particular have proposed that legislation should be supplemented or replaced by New Environmental Policy Instruments (NEPIs), such as eco-taxes, environmental charges, tradable permits and voluntary agreements. This book focuses on practical experiences with NEPIs in the EU and tests their application using the case study of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive. It traces the ways in which member states have adapted NEPIs to suit their preferred styles of environmental policy, then assesses their performance and how NEPIs have both assisted and hindered the EU environmental programme. It suggests options for ensuring that the environmental programme does not become fragmented by the use of NEPIs and discusses the implications of EU enlargement.

Book Summary:

Environmental Economics is an introduction to the basic principles of environmental economics as they have been developed in the past and as they continue to evolve. The examples discussed in this textbook represent only a sample of the full range of issues that actually exists. For this reason, the Seventh Edition sticks to the basic ideas and ways that environmental economists have found to make the basic concepts and models more specific and relevant to concrete environmental issues. The basic structure and sequence of chapters are unchanged but contain new and updated material that reflects the new research efforts by environmental economists over the last few years.

Book Summary:

"This ninth edition of Economics and the Environment is the third to include Dr. Stephen Polasky as a coauthor, who has brought to the text a reworked and stronger focus on natural resource economics and ecosystem services. This book was first published almost 30 years ago in 1992, as the Rio Earth Summit was concluding. Global warming had been brought to national and global attention only 4 years previous by James Hansen's famous congressional testimony. The first President Bush would soon sign the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. At the time, in the atmosphere stood at 356 parts per million. Twenty-five years later, levels are over 410 parts per million and climbing. Climate change remains front and center, now understood less as an environmental problem than as a challenge to civilization. As in the first edition, global warming remains the topic that launches the book and provides the framing example for a comprehensive look at environmental economics. With Steve's help, the book now provides a stronger resource and ecosystem processes lens for exploring climate change and other critical environmental issues"--
