Editorial Reviews

Review

Merrett does an adequent job of presenting the economic theory of marginal analysis in the nontechnical fashion, and his explanation of the financial accounting for the water consumption is equally nontechnical and understandable. (B.J. Peterson, Mancherster College CHOICE, Sept. 1998 Vo. 36, No.1)

The author is clear, concise, and refreshingly critical of many conventional modes of neoclassical economic analysis . . .a thought provoking view of the practicalities of water resources economics. The case studies are varied and detailed, and are valuable sources of information in their own right. (Daniel Bedford in The Professional Geographer)

Provides an introduction to hydroeconomics for students and professionals in economics, engineering, environmental science, environmental studies, geography, and hydrology. Requires no prior knowledge of either economics or hydrology. (Journal of Economic Literature, Vol. 36, No.4, December 1998)

With this book, Merrett has created the text for the 'Water Resources 101' course. . . . The author provides a solid theoretical and empirical foundation for water usage planning. He does an adequate job of presenting the economic theory of marginal analysis in a nontechnical fashion, and his explanation of financial accounting for water consumption is equally nontechnical and understandable. (CHOICE, September 1998) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
