This work, a companion to Barry Field's "Environmental Economics: An Introduction", examines how we use our natural resources, highlights some of the mistakes we have made in doing so, and teaches students to analyze these decisions.
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 ((c)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.
