A selection of 15 papers by economists from advanced capitalist countries highlight the importance of a variety of types of uncertainty and irreversibility, explore implications for economic development and environmental policies, and describe natural resource management problems of the private sector. Among specific topics are optimal environmental development under differing stochastic regimes, climate change scenarios and the precautionary principle, uncertainty analysis in integrated assessment models for acidification, weather-based index insurance to hedge temperature exposure of greenhouse horticultural firms, and an experimental assessment of the effect of heavy metal context on food pricing behavior.
