Microeconomics for Ecological Sustainability

This course applies the principles of microeconomics to ecological and environmental sustainability issues. Students will consider the operation of a market economy and how best to allocate resources, will read case studies that explore how individuals and firms make decisions about production and consumption, and will explore these decisions impact sustainability. Students will study the laws of supply and demand, explore the various causes of market failure, and examine how economic policies could be designed to correct market failure to maximize ecological sustainability.
