The RFF reader in environmental and resource policy, 2d ed.

Ed. by Wallace E. Oates.

Resources for the Future


314 pages




Nearly all of the 50 articles presented here by Oates (U. of Maryland) were drawn from Resources, the quarterly publication of Resources for the Future that contains articles on environmental economics that provide brief four-to-five-page non-technical treatments of analytical techniques for the evaluation of environmental programs, findings from specific pieces of empirical research, and assessments of important policy programs. The papers are grouped into sections that roughly parallel the structure of a typical course in environmental economics, covering science and environmental policy, valuation of the environment and benefit-cost analysis, environmental regulation, environmental accounting and statistics, environmental federalism, resource management and conservation, energy policy, global climate change, sustainable development, environmental policy in developing and transitional countries, environmental management, and a historical overview of environmental economics. Distributed in the US by Johns Hopkins U. Press.
