  12. The Political Economy of Environmental Regulation

    The Political Economy of Environmental Regulation

    Edited by Robert N. Stavins

The first three parts of the book deal respectively with these three fundamental dimensions of inquiry. The fourth part of the book examines the use of economic analysis in contemporary environmental policy. Learn More

    Environment in the New Global Economy

    Edited by Peter M. Haas
    International environmental threats have commanded widespread attention since the late 1960s.

Environment in the New Global Economy is designed as a reference source for both students, researchers and policymakers concerned with the political dimension of international environmental problems. Peter Haas has selected those previously published articles which are seminal in the development of this new field and which have either generated widespread debate or represent a clear application of major approaches to the understanding of these new issues. He has also provided an authoritative introduction to complement his selection. Learn More

  16. Recent Developments in Transport Economics

    Recent Developments in Transport Economics

    Edited by Kenneth Button
    The past decade has seen both some new trends in the economics of transportation and the reinforcement of work from previous periods.

Of increasing importance in recent years are the environmental implications of transportation as well as safety and security concerns. Economists are also addressing the problems of congestion with particular regard to new policy initiatives which tie transportation more closely to land-use patterns and telecommunications. In this volume Kenneth Button brings together some of the most significant previously published articles by leading academics in all these crucial areas. Learn More
