This is a good introductory text on the role of economics and foresters. The book discusses markets, techniques for efficiently allocating resources to achieve effective production possibilities and issues relating to achieving efficient outcomes using economic analysis to determine effectiveness. The book includes chapters on the impact of rights and the government on the production function, and explores the future of economics for foresters.
