Nature's numbers expanding the national economic accounts to include the environment by National Research Council Staff ( )
10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In order to really see the forest, what's the best way to count the trees? Understanding how the economy interacts with the environment has important implications for policy, regulatory, and business decisions. How should our national economic accounts recognize the increasing interest in and importance of the environment? Nature's Numbers responds to concerns about how the United States should make these measurements. The book recommends how to incorporate environmental and other non-market measures into the nation's income and product accounts. The panel explores alternative approaches to environmental accounting, including those used in other countries, and addresses thorny issues such as how to measure the stocks of natural resources and how to value non-market activities and assets. Specific applications to subsoil minerals, forests, and clean air show how the general principles can be applied. The analysis and insights provided in this book will be of interest to economists, policymakers, environmental advocates, economics faculty, businesses based on natural resources, and managers concerned with the role of the environment in our economic affairs
A new architecture for the U.S. national accounts by Dale W Jorgenson ( )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A New Architecture for the U.S. National Accounts brings together a distinguished group of contributors to initiate the development of a comprehensive and fully integrated set of United States national accounts. The purpose of the new architecture is not only to integrate the existing systems of accounts, but also to identify gaps and inconsistencies and expand and incorporate systems of nonmarket accounts with the core system. Since the United States economy accounts for almost thirty percent of the world economy, it is not surprising that accounting for this huge and diverse set of economic

A question of balance : weighing the options on global warming policies by William D Nordhaus ( Book )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As scientific and observational evidence on global warming piles up every day, questions of economic policy in this critical environmental topic have taken center stage. But as author and prominent Yale economist William Nordhaus observes, the issues involved in understanding global warming and slowing its harmful effects are complex and cross disciplinary boundaries. For example, ecologists see global warming as a threat to ecosystems, utilities as a debit to their balance sheets, and farmers as a hazard to their livelihoods." "In this important work, William Nordhaus integrates the entire spectrum of economic and scientific research to weigh the costs of reducing emissions against the benefits of reducing the long-run damages from global warming. The book offers one of the most extensive dynamic analyses of greenhouse-gas emissions and climate change and provides the tools to evaluate alternative approaches to slowing global warming."--Jacket

The climate casino : risk, uncertainty, and economics for a warming world by William D Nordhaus ( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Climate change is profoundly altering our world in ways that pose major risks to human societies and natural systems. We have entered the climate casino and are rolling the global-warming dice, warns the author. But there is still time to turn around and walk back out of the casino, and in this book he explains how. Bringing together all the important issues surrounding the climate debate, he describes the science, economics, and politics involved, and the steps necessary to reduce the perils of global warming. He discusses the problem from start to finish: from the beginning, where warming originates in our personal energy use, to the end, where societies employ regulations or taxes or subsidies to slow the emissions of gases responsible for climate change. He offers a new analysis of why earlier policies, such as the Kyoto Protocol, failed to slow carbon dioxide emissions, how new approaches can succeed, and which policy tools will most effectively reduce emissions. In short, he clarifies a defining problem of our times and lays out the next critical steps for slowing the trajectory of global warming. -- Publisher's description

Economics and policy issues in climate change by William D Nordhaus ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although the negotiation of the Kyoto Protocol focused world attention on the global climate, it was just one step in the ongoing process of addressing climate change in all its facets. Research by the UN?s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been ongoing since 1988. An extensive IPCC Working Group report published in 1995 examined the economic and social aspects of climate change. In this volume, eminent analysts assess that IPCC report and address the questions that emerge from it. The result is an instructive and cogent look at the realities of climate change and some metho

The Swedish nuclear dilemma energy and the environment by William D Nordhaus ( )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Renowned economist William Nordhaus has developed many innovative approaches for analyzing complex environmental questions. He applies them to the possible phaseout of nuclear power in Sweden in The Swedish Nuclear Dilemma: Energy and the Environment. While making a major contribution to that debate, this book has value that extends well beyond the Swedish issue, to the careful and well-informed consideration of environmental and energy questions that industrialized nations and developing regions now face. It is essential for anyone interested in nuclear-power issues and climate change. The Sw
