Book Description Academic Press, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "If we are to understand the impact of public policy on sustainable economic development and poverty reduction, we must likewise understand the structure of the economy and its institutions. The illustrious authors of this volume contribute to this mission by providing an integrated vision of an economy's natural resources, institutions of governance, and especially its agricultural and rural development." - His Excellency Benigno S. Aquino III, President of Republic of the Philippines "As nations around the world experience both the benefits and the problems that come with economic growth, many have come to see sustainable economic development as their key objective. This volume brings together social scientists and natural scientists from industrialized countries, emerging economies, and the developing world to examine the crucial interface between environment, resources, economic development, and political institutions. This book thereby provides an effective entry-point to the literature for novices, as well as a state-of-the-art survey for experts." -Robert N. Stavins, Harvard Kennedy School "The pursuit of sustainable development has become an important policy objective. By presenting a unique combination of conceptual analyses and insightful case studies, the book, "Sustainable Economic Development: Resources, Environment and Institutions" makes an important contribution in defining this challenging notion and identifies strategies to achieve it. This book emphasizes that the design of sustainable development policies requires understanding of the dynamics of natural resources, human behavior, economic forces, and the inner-working of institutions. The book explains complex concepts with lively analysis of important examples from fields such as water, energy, and agriculture as well as macroeconomic stabilization and poverty alleviation. This book provides an excellent introduction to development and natural resource policy for advanced students, and it is an outstanding source for economists, natural resource specialists, policy analysts, and other practitioners working in the resource and development fields." - David Zilberman, UC Berkeley.
