Provides an applied, practical approach to environmental economic theory that is accessible to students who have had minimal exposure to economics as well as those with an advanced understanding. With a strong focus on policy and real-world issues, Callan/Thomas's ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS AND MANAGEMENT: THEORY, POLICY AND APPLICATIONS, Fifth Edition, complements economic theory with timely, real-world applications. Undergraduate or MBA students gain a clear perspective of the relationship between market activity and the environment. This text integrates a strong business perspective into the development of environmental decision making for a unique vantage point often overlooked in more conventional approaches. Students learn to use economic analytical tools, such as market models, benefit-cost analysis, and risk analysis, effectively to assess environmental problems and to evaluate policy solutions. With a proven, modular structure, this edition provides a well-organized presentation with the flexibility to tailor the presentation to your needs.

In addition to this textbook, Dr. Callan has authored numerous applied microeconomic articles for economic journals including the SOUTHERN ECONOMIC JOURNAL, REVIEW OF INDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATION, JOURNAL OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC STATISTICS, and JOURNAL OF SPORTS ECONOMICS.

He also examines demand-side topics including the impact of pay-as-you-throw programs on waste generation, disposal, and recycling activities. His study of supply-side issues has focused on the extent of economies of scale and scope in the provision of MSW services. His research findings have appeared in LAND ECONOMICS and ENVIRONMENTAL AND RESOURCE ECONOMICS as well as other academic journals. Recent research efforts have explored the many facets of corporate social performance and its affect on firm behavior.
