Is it possible to maintain sustainable development? What sacrifices do developing countries make in their environment to progress in their economic advancement? This work is comprehensive in its survey of environmental economics. Bridging the gap between theory and application, the authors explore many issues including evaluating environmental damage and benefits, population growth and resources scarcity, income distribution and poverty, acid rain and the greenhouse effect, and world markets and natural resource degradation.
