Economics, Energy, and the Environment

Lynne Kiesling

I’m still out in Montana, attending a Foundation for Research on Economics and the Environment conference on energy for federal judges and law professors. Today I’m talking about one of my favorite topics: prices to devices!

So far I’ve learned a lot, including a very interesting presentation from University of Illinois professor Bob Thompson about the interaction of global energy use and global food supply, with particular reference to biofuels. We discussed a lot of the issues in the Runge and Senauer article I discussed a couple of weeks ago.

I also did a great trail run yesterday. Montana’s awesome.
