Thank you, and happy Earth Day!

There are some good texts available although too many books on agriculture for my liking - a peculiar US academic trait. How do they sustain so many "Agricultural departments and so many agricultural economists (writing so many books)"? The UK has virtually none left and agriculture's contribution to GDP shrinks every year as I am sure it does in the US.

A couple of books that look interesting and that I should buy (especially if they are half price :-) include:

Reality Check: The Nature and Performance of Voluntary Environmental Programs in the United States, Europe, and Japan by Richard D. Morgenstern and William A. Pizer, Editors. With a promotion VIDEO!

The RFF Reader in Environmental and Resource Policy, 2nd Edition
Wallace E. Oates, editor.

Small Firms and the Environment in Developing Countries Collective Impacts, Collective Action, Allen Blackman, Editor

Environmental and Resource Economics in the World of the Poor, Partha Dasgupta

There are so many books I gave up after authors beginning with "G". Happy hunting.
