Program Description: Applying Austrian economic ideas to environmentalism as it applies to ecology, economics, common law, and regulation, theis Research Roundtable discussed 4 original draft papers in detail. The various papers focus on ecology viewed as discordant harmonies; Austrian vs. neoclassical environmental economics; the common law as an evolutionary process; and legal and regulatory barriers to dynamic environmental policies. The goal of our discussions was to improve upon the papers through an oral peer review process.
Attendance was limited to 24 discussants and available through invitation only.
