PROJECT MODIFICATIONS: Nothing significant to report. These scenarios cover different resources (raw materials, metals, energy, climate water, land biodiversity) and economic sectors (construction and housing, agriculture and food, industry and manufacturing, transport).

The economic perspective begins with the assertion that the environment is an economic good: it is scarce; it has alternative uses; and we must choose among those alternatives. This evidence, which is supported by much economic theory, has led to a reconsideration of the traditional view. Now, we have over 40 courses and seminars. We also value excellence in teaching; all our lecturers have received outstanding teaching evaluations, and one of them is a co-author of the best-selling environmental economics textbook in Europe.

There is a possibility of even completing the grand coalition. Thus, the parameters of the payoff functions are uncertain, and assumptions on parameters as well as functional forms are needed to be able to analyse the effect of uncertainty on coalition formation.

They need not be troubled that some of their models suppose that all agents know the prices of all present and future commodities in all markets. Much of our research also focuses on the intersection of ecological economics with the economics of technological change.
