Economics Department Seminar Series: Andrew Plantinga
The Economics Department Seminar Series presents, Do Property Rights Alleviate the Problem of the Commons? Evidence from California Groundwater Rights . Dr. Andrew Plantinga will be our guest speaker for this presentation.
Andrew Plantinga is a Professor of Natural Resource Economics and Policy at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Dr. Plantinga’s research focuses on the economics of land use, climate change, and forests. Particular emphasis is given to the development of methods for econometrically modeling land-use decisions, the analysis of environmental policies that affect private land-use decisions, and the modeling of land development pressures. A current project, funded by the National Science Foundation, involves the development of econometric land-use models to support an integrated analysis of climate change and water scarcity in the Willamette Basin of Oregon. Additional work examines how urban growth controls affect property values and urbanization rates.
