Natural resource economics can be summarized by dividing it into three main lines of thought: the theory of producibility and scarcity developed by classical economists; the theory of general and natural scarcities developed by marginalists and neoclassicals; the theory of dynamics with and without natural scarcities developed by macroeconomists, structuralists and empirical stylizers. When the world economy feels the constraints imposed by natural resources and raw materials the contribution of economic theory may be useful in order both to interpret and predict events, and to identify economic policies.
