Back in 2006 I wrote a piece entitled, "Why Environmentalists Should Embrace Economics", which appeared on Gristmill in two parts. The feedback I received from around the world was so overwhelmingly positive that I decided to expand the themes of the essay into a book. Well, now it's done (with the title What Environmentalists Need to Know About Economics) and it's available online free to anyone who is interested. I hope some of you will find it both interesting and useful. Please spread the word and I invite all constructive criticism. Thanks and happy New Year and new administration!!
