This course will offer a framework for education in the field of ecological economics, by providing a theoretical grounding in economics from first principles, therein exploring the fundamental principles of efficiency in the distribution of resources in society. Virtually all decision-making in the socio-environmental domain is affected by these principles. The course covers not only conventional (neo-classical) economics but also criticisms of this dominant paradigm. This course provides a conceptual understanding of economics and uses case studies to discuss applications in practice, by examining the principles of economics and how they might be applied to environmental and resource use issues.
