New horizons in environmental economics ;.


"This challenging book addresses environmental and resource management problems that continue to emerge despite increasing attempts at regulation. It proposes a proactive approach to environmental and resource management through the design of institutions and organizations. In addition, it suggests that social rules for environmental management can be improved by taking into account the social costs of externalities and the administrative and transaction costs to reduce them."--BOOK JACKET. "Integrating economics with ideas from political science, psychology, and game theory, Designing Institutions for Environmental and Resource Management will be of interest to all those endeavoring to improve environmental policy."--BOOK JACKET.
