What is the Natural Resource Economics?
In foundational production models, increased demand can be met by increasing production, but that framework falls short when the good in question is a naturally occurring resource. Natural Resource Economics introduces natural limits on what inputs society has at its disposal, and considers the critical role that property rights, institutions, and policy can play in their management, from developed countries to developing countries. Topics include conservation, sustainability of renewable and non-renewable resources, and management of the natural world.
