Robert N. Stavins has been one of the most influential voices in environmental economics and policy over the past two decades. The 26 essays in this book, written by Professor Stavins and his co-authors over the period 2000–2011, originally appeared in a diverse set of leading, scholarly periodicals, and are collected here for the first time. This book is divided into seven parts: overview; methods of environmental policy analysis; economic analysis of environmental policy instruments; economics and technical change; natural resource economics – land and water; domestic climate change policy; and international climate change policy. The book begins with anintroductory essay in which Stavins reflects on the professional path that led to his research and writing and identifies common themes that emerge from this period of research.
