This unit begins by addressing the issues associated with future energy demand, supply, and prices. For example, can we forecast future energy prices? The unit then progresses to look more generally at the use of resources as economies develop, by addressing questions such as: Is our resource use sustainable? What impact does resource use have on future generations? And what economic tools can be used to address these questions?
Cloud (online) students need to ensure they have Eviews access either by going to Burwood (Melbourne) or Waterfront (Geelong) campuses, or by buying their own private copies.
