Econ 4999: Economics, Ethics, and the Environment

Interesting and noteworthy essays and projects by students in Economics, Ethics and the Environment

These are some of the essays that I found thought provoking. However, that does not mean that each is without mistakes, without typos, and absent errors of logic. It is difficult to write a paper without at least some of these evils. In addition, I don't necesarily agree with the opinions expressed.

In some of these essays, I have embedded comments directly in the .pdf file.

Reading all or some of these essays should be your first step in choosing a topic for your essay and researching how you might write your essay
