Nova Science Publishers, Jan 1, 2008 - Political Science - 235 pages
This book presents the latest research from around the globe in the field of energy economics which is a sub-field of economics that focuses on energy relationships as the foundation of all other relationships. It is a sub-field of ecological economics in that it assumes that food chains in ecology are directly analogous to energy supply chains in human industries. Coverage includes issues related to optimal production and consumption affecting energy, minerals, land, air and water, and includes analysis of firm and industry behaviour, environmental issues and public policies.
