Hey does anyone know where I can find lecture notes or any free online text on Environmental Economics?
Yea that is my second field of interest after Econometrics. But people today me that the field is kinda of going away which I don't believe. But they said is not a good a good combination with Econometrics, so I switched to my other field macroeconomics. But still got extreme love for the field.
Silence is defined by those who do not define it and not defined by those who define.
gravity - there are some interesting opportunities at the intersection of environmental econ and econometrics. On the applied metrics side - envt kuznets curve, trade and envt, etc; spatial econometrics is used for many hedonic studies of the welfare loss/gain from (dis)amenities, and spatial metrics has also been used in studying determinants of deforestation. Some recent papers on contingent valuation seem to use a fair amount of statistics too. If you're have a couple of areas of interest in mind, Profs. Pfaff and Stavins put out a list by topic of ~1000 major papers in the field (http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.c...act_id=168969), so that might be a helpful place to start.
personal statement I think some AGEC departments have strong faculty in metrics, most notably Berkeley, if you have a strong interest in the two fields.
