This blog features new documents and web resources for scholars of resource and energy economics, environmental and energy policy and risk management. The reason I post mainly non-academic reports  (from governmental entities, trade associations, think tanks,etc.)  is because sources already exist for academic papers in economics. In particular, these are: RePEc, AgEcon Search and the fee-based alerts from Social Science Research Network.  However, there is no single source for current non-academic research in topics relevant to environmental and energy econ and risk management. Your comments are appreciated.

RFF Library Blog supports the research program at Resources for the Future. All readers are welcome. Our posts mention the issuing organization and referring site if any. Most documents are free and full-text. I let you know if there’s a fee or subscription involved.  Archives of RFF’s own research papers, educational materials, books and events are at www.rff.org.

  1. Aloha,

    I found your site through a search for economics and University of Hawaii. These links are a great collection of documents.

    In accordance with your about section, I would appreciate seeing more academic papers and perhaps more on economic techniques of environmental valuation, i.e. contingent analysis/valuation, hedonic pricing/wages, etc.


  2. I found your site through the wordpress automatic post (relative) suggestion program. I also write on some relevant topics. Your writing and links for different sites helps me a lot in my own research. Thanks and keep us updated.

  3. Hi!

    I just helped build an infographic about how we consume electricity around the house and how we can reduce the amount we use. I thought you might like to use it on the RFF Library Blog.

    Here’s the link: http://www.powersupersite.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/electricityinfographic.html

    The HTML code to post it is at the bottom of the page.

    We’re planning one on the proper way to dispose of batteries next. Let me know if you want me to send you that one as well.

    We’re also doing a contest to see who can generate the most discussion by the end of September (total comments on blogs, facebook, twitter responses and retweets, etc.). We’ll send the winner a $50 gift certificate to Amazon. Just send me the link to your blog post.
