Economics of Natural Resources

Natural resources may be renewable, such as wood, or non-renewable, such as oil and gas. This course uses insights from economics to better understand contemporary problems arising from the increasing scarcity of natural resources. It looks at the various repercussions of the commercial use of nature, including the issues of climate change, environmental degradation and increasing oil consumption. It seeks to explain these phenomena and considers how economists address problems arising from scarcity and depletion.
