ECO 481 - Economic Sustainability (3 cr.)


This course describes the science, business, economics, and policy of sustainability. The subject matter is cross-disciplinary, requiring the student to understand the science of sustainable resource usage, and the interplay between science, the technologies, and economics before we can draw sustainable policy conclusions. Inevitably, sustainability invokes the entire global web of economics, the environment, and our finite factors of the earth. We will study this interaction and role non-renewable and renewable resources play in our global economy. However, these principles do not apply to resource usage alone. Rather, we describe how our decision can be made within the context of sustainable resources, practices, dispersed communities and economic systems, and organizations. The implications on our global political economy are highlighted.
