This blog pretty much reflects the position I share -- though I might disagree with some of theirs -- on environment and economics. One good post that has triggered interesting debate is this. Even today, I find it amazing (and amusing, I should add) that many people think environmental economics is all about tree-hugging. At best, we are thought of as double-agents: environmentalists accuse us as being unethical ("Who are you to put price on the environment?") while "mainstream economists" (for lack of better term) calls us a sect.
This is an exam I once gave in class. And this is my frustration. (Today, I still find it at odds that some environmentalists oppose fuel price increase that follows a subsidy cut!).
