Estimating equilibrium models of sorting across locations
(Economic Journal, 2007-03-01)
While there is growing interest in measuring the size and scope of local spillovers, it is well understood that such spillovers cannot be distinguished from unobservable local attributes using solely the observed location ...
Modeling economy-wide vs sectoral climate policies using combined aggregate-sectoral models
(Energy Journal, 2006-07-25)
Economic analyses of climate change policies frequently focus on reductions of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions via market-based, economy-wide policies. The current course of environment and energy policy debate in ...
Modeling endogenous technological change for climate policy analysis
(Energy Economics, 2008-11-01)
The approach used to model technological change in a climate policy model is a critical determinant of its results in terms of the time path of CO2 prices and costs required to achieve various emission reduction goals. We ...
Migration and hedonic valuation: The case of air quality
(Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, 2009-07-01)
Conventional hedonic techniques for estimating the value of local amenities rely on the assumption that households move freely among locations. We show that when moving is costly, the variation in housing prices and wages ...
Designing Climate Mitigation Policy
Discounting the Benefits of Climate Change Policies Using Uncertain Rates
Evaluating environmental policies, such as the mitigation of greenhouse gases, frequently requires balancing near-term mitigation costs against long-term environmental benefits. Conventional approaches to valuing such investments ...
Energy Efficiency Policies: A Retrospective Examination
(Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2006-11)
Seeing the forest for the fuel
(Environment and Development Economics, 2004-02-01)
We demonstrate a new approach to understanding the role of fuelwood in the rural household economy by applying insights from travel cost modeling to author-compiled household survey data and meso-scale environmental statistics ...
