Environmental and Energy Economics
This course introduces students to the economist's approach to solving environmental problems and related aspects of energy markets. The first part of the course concentrates on the economic theory used to solve environmental problems, including those associated with energy production and utilization. In the latter half of the course, the theory will be used as a framework to approach a wide range of environmental and energy issues. The purpose of the course is to expose students to sufficiently rigorous economic analysis to enable them to appreciate the usefulness of the economic approach to environmental and energy-related problem solving and to enable them to critique economic analyses they may be presented with in future decision-making roles.ECON 670L and EEOS 670L and UPCD 670L are the same course.
