The degree classification shall be based on a cumulative average mark for the four years of study. Throughout most of the history of economic thought, scholars have postulated some rather simple psychological principles that are assumed to govern consumers’ behavior—principles such as the hedonistic calculus, diminishing marginal utility, or indifference-curve maps. We are expanding this model to analyze ecosystem service trade-offs and synergies with expanded bioenergy production as well as profitability and environmental effects of spatially diffused local biomass processing depots.

The notion of carrying capacity is used to show that the earth has a limited ability to tolerate the disposal of contaminants and the depletion of resources. Research suggests that successful self-coordination of actual common property rights regimes seem to depend, among other things, on information and transaction costs of achieving a credible commitment to the collective, active rules to self-monitor and sanction violators, and the presence of boundary rules that define who can appropriate resources from the commons.

Most will include some microeconomic theory, looking at how firms and individuals behave when production or consumption involves externalities. At the other extreme are competitive markets with many sellers and buyers who do not collude [see Competition ]. Large areas of Central and South America, and almost all of sub-Saharan Africa, have been left behind. Recent work builds on a long-standing tradition of comparing command-and-control mandates, cap-and-trade permits, and pollution taxes to control emissions. 17 For example, although standard models suggest that market-based instruments are cost-minimizing, Lawrence Goulder, Marc Hafstead, and Roberton Williams III describe circumstances when standards might yield greater efficiency. 18 Actual policy has mostly shied away from market-based instruments such as permits or taxes, which raise the cost of production, and instead favors energy efficiency standards, voluntary conservation, 19 and subsidies. 20 Some research has focused on R&D or technology policy, 21 and investigated new ways to combat climate change, such as work by Garth Heutel and coauthors, Juan Moreno-Cruz and Soheil Shayegh, and Moreno-Cruz and Katharine Ricke, on geoengineering. 22 In the international context, a paper by Derek Kellenberg and Arik Levinson, and other papers by Martin Weitzman, have studied the formation of multinational environmental agreements, 23 and the problem posed by the possibility that a unilateral policy promulgated by one nation or coalition could provide an incentive to others to embrace policies that increase emissions. 24 The NBER's research program in Environment and Energy Economics (EEE) was launched in 2007.

To quantify existence values accurately within the framework of environmental valuation is difficult; for example revealed preference methods, such as the travel cost method and hedonic pricing methods, measure the demand for the environmental resource by measuring the demand for associated market goods.
