Environment, Markets and Politics

The course offers deepened insight into how political and economic processes and dynamics both give rise to, and contribute to solutions for environmental problems.

Specifically, the course focuses on questions of market failure and externalization problems, market equilibrium and efficiency, rational choice models of economic action, welfare theorems, democracy and environmental issues, environmental policy-making, the role of the state in environmental issues, as well as the relationship between economic growth and environmental impact in an historical perspective.
