9780072316773: Natural Resource Economics

Barry Field is an authority on natural resource economics and has a successful Irwin/McGraw-Hill book Environmental Economics: An Introduction, 0-07-021498-0 (©1997). Natural Resource Economics will be a companion to that book. This new text will examine how we as humans decide to use our natural resources, will highlight some of the mistakes we have made in doing so, and will teach students to analyze these decisions. Students will become more informed about the choices we make in shaping and managing our natural world. The guiding principle of the book is to present the necessary concepts in an accessible, but rigorous way at the introductory level, and then see how they apply to some of the important questions we face about natural resource use.

From the Back Cover:

"A comprehensive, well written text that has appeal in many undergraduate programs." -- Timothy Considine, Penn State University

"Very readable and informative. It is great to have a book on natural resource economics for noneconomics majors that is not so quantitative. Its extensive coverage of topics makes it easy for an instructor to pick and choose chapters to fit his/her interest." -- Molly Espey, Clemson University

"The design of the book with sections on economic building blocks and natural resource analysis coming before specific application chapters on minerals, energy, water, agriculture, etc. is a good pedagogic tool." -- N. Eric Hampton, St. Cloud State University

"For an introductory text, the book achieves the objective of being written in nontechnical terms. When technical terms are used, they are defined and examples are provided to elucidate their meanings. The book provides a clear connection between natural resource uses and the economy." -- Wesseh Wollo, Lincoln University

"Field presents all of the important topics and issues related to natural resource use, as well as a nice balance of theoretical principles and policy analysis." -- Paul M. Comolli, University of Kansas

"Extremely well done. I am especially impressed by Field's expositions on valuation (chapter 9) and biodiversity (chapter 19) since these are difficult subjects. His discussions are clear, concise, and inclusive of important theoretical/graphical concepts." -- Renatte Adler, San Diego State University
