ECON 43535 - Section 01: Econ of Natural Resources (CRN 29440)
Long Title: Economics of Natural Resources

Course Description:
Treatises on "optimal" harvesting of trees and other natural resources date back at least to John Evelyn (1620 -1706). This course examines a wide variety of situations in which the socially optimal "economic use" of a natural resource involves its preservation. Emphasis is placed on: using the logic of economics to demonstrate when preservation of a natural resource is preferable to its reduction or destruction; using examples to clarify these arguments; and broadening the definition of "natural resources" to include some nontraditional resources.
