Dr. Noelwah R. Netusil, the Stanley H. Cohn Professor of Economics at Reed College, graced us with the aforementioned presentation at our final GEMinar (Geography, Environmental Science, and Marine Resource Management seminar) for the Winter term.
She gave an excellent lecture on a fascinating topic. Below is a PDF of her PPT; a full-length paper is in preparation.
Her work is part of the NSF-funded Portland-Vancouver Urban Long-Term Research Area (ULTRA) project.
Factoid: Like yours truly, she hails from Long Island, NY - the town of Sound Beach, on Long Island Sound.
“I was quite depressed two weeks ago when I spent an afternoon at Brentano's Bookshop in New York and was looking at the kind of books most people read. Once you see that you lose all hope.” - Friedrich A. von Hayek
