About the Author

Eloi Laurent is a Senior Research Fellow at OFCE (Sciences Po Center for Economic Research, Paris), Professor at the School of Management and Innovation at Sciences Po, and Visiting Professor at Stanford University.


"In The New Environmental Economics, Eloi Laurent brings justice and sustainability to center stage as foundations for sound environmental policy - where they belong. This book could help to revolutionize the teaching of this vital subject."
James K. Boyce, University of Massachusetts Amherst

"All economics is - or should be - environmental economics. Eloi Laurent eloquently reminds us that, as the science of allocating scarce resources, economics has questions of environmental science and social justice at its heart. This book sets out what is needed for economic policy to deliver sustainability in its broadest sense. The challenge could not be more urgent."
Diane Coyle, University of Cambridge
