Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course will consists of the following
1. Review of the standard theory of (negative) externalities and the scope and length devoted to this topic will be made contingent on the students' familiarity.
2. Resource economics (renewable and non renewable), where less familiarity will be assumed.
3. Outline of topical environmental problems and their economic characteristics.
4. Recent approaches - dynamic optimization, dynamic games, coalition formation, and incentive mechanism - to particular environmental problems based on my own research focus.
5. Students must present and review one of the most recent papers of their own choice (from the last World Congress of Environmental Economics, Montreal 2010) in order to be exposed with most recent interests and corresponding methods and in order to sketch ideas about further or related research.
