This is an undergraduate course in the environmental economics as distinct from ecological economics, which takes a much broader, if more pessimistic view of the interaction between economic activity and the environment. The emphasis is on the fundamental economic principles that guide the way economists structures and looks at environmental. It is essentially a course in applied economic theory, where the application is to the environment and natural resources. The course is also useful as a framework or guide to policy, though it is sometimes difficult to translate the theory directly and operationally into policy.
