My New Book: Fundamentals of Environmental Economics is Published
On Amazon, I’ve published a $2 environmental economics book. I priced it low to try to disrupt the environmental economics textbook business and to try to lure people to read it. This book can easier just be read as a “normal book” or can be used as a funky textbook for a class related to environmental economics. For law professors who teach environmental law, my book would add plenty of economic logic to your course and would expose your students to how Chicago economists think about solving a variety of environmental externalities. If environmental laws are going to mitigate these problems then they must impact the behavior of various economic actors. Some of the externalities I discuss in depth include; air pollution, water pollution, climate change, garbage, noise pollution, and protecting biodiversity and the food supply.
