IPEC-329 Environmental Economic Policy: Domestic and Global Applications
Spring for 2016-2017
This course will take an empirical economic focus on environmental issues from a domestic and global perspective. The course will move from a review of environmental externalities and a comparison of corrective policy instruments to understanding research at the frontier of the field. Emphasis will be placed on developing a critical skill set for causal econometric inference, with applications to economic behavior, water and energy use, climate change, air pollution, and transportation, in both the developed and developing world. Under guidance from the instructor, students will develop their own empirical research projects, culminating in a term paper.This course is taught by Dr. Casey J. Wichman.
Prerequisites: ECON 101 and ECON 121
