M 2:00-4:00 pm * 355 GSPP * Professor Lee Friedman

Cross listed with AREC253.

PP259 (3) Cost-Benefit Analysis CCN 77217
TuTh 5:00-6:30 pm * 105 GSPP * Visiting Professors Larry Dale & Pete Larsen
Three hours of lecture per week. This course focuses on the application of economic tools to the analysis of a wide range of contemporary policy issues. It is intended to help students become sophisticated consumers of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and related methods. While applications will be emphasized throughout the course, the underlying theory and analytical techniques will be developed rigorously as
well. Areas to be explored will include environmental policy, natural resource management, health care policy, research and development, and health and safety regulation. Practical professional skills will be emphasized as well: these will include visual presentation of data and concepts, writing clear and concise memos, using spreadsheet software to solve problems, and working successfully on teams.

PP282-1 (4) Environment and Technology from the Policy and Business Perspective CCN 77247
TuTh 12:30-2:00 * 250 GSPP * Professor Margaret Taylor
Three hours of lecture and one hour of discussion per week. This class explores a wide range of environmental policy issues that shed light on the complex relationships between the natural environment, technology, policy, and business. The first few weeks provide an overview of contemporary (and historic) environmental problems and introduce a number of political and economic themes as well as approaches to environmental policy and management. But most of the classes explore the government and business contexts in which particular environmental technology “heroes” and “villains” develop, with the idea of creating a “bottom-up” understanding of the dynamics of environmental innovation as well as
technology-induced risk. This class should particularly appeal to students interested in designing innovative approaches to environmental policy and management from positions in government, industry, or the non-profit sector. Topics include water management, approaches to solid waste issues, the reduction of air pollution from stationary and mobile sources, solutions to climate change, and coping strategies with respect to emerging technologies with potential environmental implications, including nanotechnology.
