Economics for the Built Environment

Front Cover
Butterworth-Heinemann, 1993 - Architecture - 267 pages
Many economics texts for built environment students start with a general introduction to economic theory, which students find difficult to apply to their field of study. 'Economics for the Built Environment' avoids this approach by involving construction from the beginning, using relevant examples to introduce and illustrate topics in economics.

This book sets out to explain how 'real world' issues of construction and property can be understood by the correct application of economic theory. It includes large amounts of empirical analysis and examples, which set it apart from most texts currently available on the subject.

Economics for the Built Environment is suitable for first and second year degree and diploma students of a wide range of built environment disciplines; building, construction management, building surveying, land economy, land management, estate management, and planning.
