Economics of Renewables: Marine and Energy Resources
This course introduces students to the use of economic analysis in helping to solve marine and energy related natural resource problems. The first part of the course focuses on the economic theory used to analyze natural resource and energy issues. In the latter half of the course these theoretical tools will be used as a framework to analyze a wide range of issues dealing with marine resources and renewable energy. The purpose of the course is to expose students to sufficiently rigorous economics analysis to enable them to appreciate the usefulness of the economic approach to resource and renewable energy problem solving and to critique economic analyses they may be presented with in future decision-making roles.ECON 675L and EEOS 675L are the same course.
