Advancing the Theory and Methods for Understanding Employment Effects of Environmental Regulation
The Environmental Protection Agency's National Center for Environmental Economics and Professor V. Kerry Smith (Arizona State University), with support from Abt Associates, convened a one-day workshop exploring theory and methods relevant to the employment effects of environmental regulation. The workshop was held October 26, 2012 at the Resources & Conservation Center in Washington, D.C. The purpose was to consider the research needed to improve the practices of policy evaluation to take better account of the state of the economy and the employment effects of regulations. An effort was made to include diverse perspectives and approaches from a variety of sub disciplines within the economics profession that could be useful for modeling employment effects. Technical papers were presented or discussed by macroeconomists, regional economists, labor economists, and environmental economists.
