Economics 471 is a broad introduction to market failure, with theoretical, empirical, institutional, and historical perspectives on current U.S. environmental problems. This course is intended primarily for upper-division undergraduates in the economics concentration and for graduate students from outside economics (but note carefully the prerequisite comfort with calculus and a recent, challenging intermediate microeconomic theory course are essential). The format for most classes is lecture-with-interruption, with time allocated for questions and discussions. The course deals with: (1) the economic theory of externalities and public goods (and "public bads"); and (2) the economic analysis of current U.S. environmental policy, emphasizing air and water pollution and waste problems generation, collection, recycling, and disposal (emphasizing municipal solid waste, low-level radioactive waste, and Superfund). There will be regular unannounced short quizzes and a cumulative final exam.

Students will be evaluated based on performance on problem sets and exams. A solid grounding in microeconomics and practice with mathematical optimization will make the course more accessible.
