E 340 Environmental Economics and Finance (3 cr.) This course
familiarizes students with the principles of environmental
economics, finance, and cost-benefit analysis. The incentive effects
of environmental policy design are assessed. Policy instruments
include tradeable permits, emissions taxes, deposit-refund systems,
pollution-prevention programs, and voluntary agreements. Project
appraisal techniques are then developed and applied to specific case
evaluations.
