We’ve joined “The Conversation” and will be working to participate in discussions of resource and environmental economics – and maybe other timely and fascinating stories that economists like to be a part of – in that forum.

The premise is academic ideas and insights, with dissemination assisted by journalism. From the website: “The Conversation is a collaboration between editors and academics to provide informed news analysis and commentary that’s free to read and republish.” Let’s see if we can raise the bar for discourse these days, and spread real news!

Join us there, and check out our first contribution.
