Environmental Economics and Policy is a Social Science class taught by Stanley Warner.

Course Description

This is a foundational course for Division II students in the areas of environmental studies, American politics, and political economy. We will explore the legal and economic frameworks used to shape public policy toward forests, rivers, endangered species, global warming, and alternative energy. Economic approaches to valuing environmental resources, such as cost-benefit analysis, will be contrasted with the competing interests of different political constituencies to understand how policy choices are made. Student teams of three or four will research and present findings in specific areas. This course satisfies the Division I distribution requirements.
