Class Details

We’ll use economics to learn why we harm the environment and overuse natural resources, and what we can do about it. We’ll talk about whether and how we can put a dollar value on nature and ecosystem services. We’ll study cost benefit analysis, pollution in general, climate change, natural resources (like fisheries, forests, and fossil fuels), and energy. We will take an economic approach to global sustainability, and study the relationship between the environment and economic growth and trade.
