This is a unique way of looking at resources and environmental problems since most pundits believe that markets cause these problems. This class is a survey of the arguments in support of what is commonly referred to as “free market environmentalism.” The purpose of the course is to reveal how economists, in particular free market environmentalists, view resource and environment problems and how they would create environmental policy.
