"Introduction to Global Eco and Social-preneurship and Innovation"
This course will review invention, design, innovation, and entrepreneurship from an economic perspective and the ability to reduce concepts and ideas to practice. The course will help the student appreciate and understand the contributions that various disciplines and others make in successfully completing a project. The course will review case studies and material from Harvard Business School, Stanford University, Singularity University, Soundview books and other sources.
"Environmental and Natural Resource Economics"
The subject matter of Economics 4440, Environmental and Natural Resource Economics needs little introduction. We are generally bombarded with events associated with natural resources and the environment. The topics are familiar: high gas prices, endangered species, global warming, issues associated with the use of hydrocarbon fuels, air and water pollution, oil spills, nuclear and other toxic wastes, and deforestation among others. Policies to deal with issues associated with the environment and the pursuit of scarce resources are an important part of our political and economics debate. The question of what constitutes pollution and how much we should invest as a society on the abatement of such substances is an important aspect of public policy.
