Jim Casey, professor of economics at Washington and Lee University, contributed a chapter to a book called “Teaching Environmental and Natural Resource Economics,” published by Edward Elgar Publishing. The book is a significant contribution to the literature of economics education.
According to the publisher’s website, “The editors begin by presenting a bit of the historical thought on the study of environmental and natural resource economics. They then provide a full exploration of both paradigms and pedagogy.”
“The paradigm section provides models for teaching various courses offered at the university level. The chapters bridge the gap between environmental and natural resource economics textbooks and the classroom, with guidance for how to approach course topics. The pedagogy section is an excellent contribution to the teaching of environmental and natural resource economics, covering both particular topics and teaching methods.”
Casey’s contribution is Chapter 14, which describes a teaching module focused on climate change that considers the full costs of producing and consuming energy resources.
