Energy Efficiency Policies: A Retrospective Examination
(Annual Review of Environment and Resources, 2006-11)
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 ...
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 ...

Discounting the distant future: How much do uncertain rates increase valuations?
(Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, 2003-07-01)
We demonstrate that when the future path of the discount rate is uncertain and highly correlated, the distant future should be discounted at significantly lower rates than suggested by the current rate. We then use two centuries ...
Carbon mitigation costs for the commercial building sector: Discrete-continuous choice analysis of multifuel energy demand
(Resource and Energy Economics, 2008-12-01)
We estimate a carbon mitigation cost curve for the U.S. commercial sector based on econometric estimation of the responsiveness of fuel demand and equipment choices to energy price changes. The model econometrically estimates ...
Worth of watersheds: A producer surplus approach for valuing drought mitigation in Eastern Indonesia
(Environment and Development Economics, 2001-02-01)
This study combines hydrological modeling with applied micro-econometric techniques to value a complex ecosystem service: drought mitigation provided by tropical forested watersheds to agrarian communities. Spatial variation ...
Local Uses of Parks: Uncovering Patterns of Household Production from Forests of Siberut, Indonesia
(Conservation and Society, 2003)
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 ...
