Provide your students with an applied, practical approach to environmental economic theory that is accessible to both students who have minimal exposure to economics, and students with an advanced understanding of economics. With a strong focus on policy and real-world issues, Callan/Thomas's ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS AND MANAGEMENT: THEORY, POLICY AND APPLICATIONS, Sixth Edition, does not compromise economic theoretical concepts, but it does complement economic theory with timely, real-world applications. Your undergraduate or MBA students will gain a clear perspective of the relationship between market activity and the environment.
The text integrates a strong business perspective into the development of environmental decision making for a vantage point often overlooked in more conventional approaches. The book emphasizes the use of economic analytical tools, such as market models, benefit-cost analysis, and risk analysis, 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 easily tailor the order of presentation and content of the course to your individual teaching needs.
