Summary "Civil engineers who design, construct, or manage infrastructure or environmental systems often find themselves facing decisions that involve factors outside technical and engineering requirements: Can a transportation system be made more sustainable? How can we balance environmental demands with available financing? How can priorities for building and repairing water systems be established in light of limited resources?
Economics and Finance for Engineers and Planners: Managing Infrastructure and Natural Resources presents the core issues of economics and finance that relate directly to the work of civil engineers, construction managers, and public works and utility officials. This book answers the practical questions that confront engineers involved in infrastructure, natural resources, and the environment. It explains the economic forces, reviews financial methods, and offers the management tools necessary for civil and environmental engineers to be successful."--pub. desc.
