'This is a far-reaching work on the foundations of the economics for global public goods. The clarity of exposition, the depth and breadth of reach, allied to the sheer elegance of the analysis undertaken in it by Professor Uzawa, are what we have come to expect from one of the noblest and most acute social scientists of our time.' Sir Partha Dasgupta, University of Cambridge
'This long-awaited book by one of the leading economic theorists of the last century sheds new light on one of the most significant and least tractable environmental problems of our times, climate change. Not every feature of the problem is addressed, but what is covered is vintage Uzawa. The deferential (Nash) equilibrium and the core of the cooperative game between major sources of greenhouse gases are characterized with a rigour that many will find deeply satisfying. Not for the first time, an initiative by the Royal Swedish Academy of Science's Beijer Institute has strengthened the foundations of environmental economics everywhere.' Charles Perrings, University of York
'Global climate change presents important challenges and interesting problems for economic theory and empirical policy analysis, because of climate change's massive scale, long time horizon, and fundamental uncertainty. There is no one better equipped to write a book on the relationship between economic theory and global warming than Hirofumi Uzawa, the distinguished theorist from the University of Tokyo. This book will advance discussions among economists and become a standard reference for the profession.' Robert Stavins, Harvard University
