We will pay special attention to the economic causes and solutions to environmental problems and use case studies of issues such as endangered species, mining, hydroelectric dams, water rights, public lands management, and logging to explore the relationship between economics, politics, ethics, and science in the making of environmental policies. The course will be taught at Holden Village, an ecumenical retreat center in Washington's Cascade Mountains.
