Neuroeconomics: A New Direction for Valuing Environmental Public Goods

Experts at this seminar, hosted by RFF with New York University’s Institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of Decision Making, examined new findings from the institute that bring neuroscience to bear on what was once largely an economics question: How do people value environmental goods? Panelists discussed how these findings compare with traditional contingent valuation (one of the longest-standing, conventional approaches to environmental valuation) and the implications for public policy.

Workshops & Seminars featuring Paul Glimcher, Lewis Groswald, Arik Levinson, Michael Livermore, Molly Macauley, and Juli Trtanj — June 1, 2016
