Pannell Discussions

Transaction costs workshop

There was a bit of interest in last week's Pannell Discussion about transaction costs. This one is an advertisement for a national workshop on the topic, as it relates to environmental and natural resource policy.

I received a couple of particularly thoughtful emails about last week's discussion on transaction costs. I've added them to the end of last week's page, here.

For those of you who were interested in last week's topic, you may like to know about a national workshop that will be held in Perth in February, prior to the annual conference of the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society.

Title
Transaction Costs in Environmental and Natural Resource Policy

Organisers
Professor David Pannell, University of Western Australia
Assoc. Professor Laura McCann, University of Missouri
Dr. Dustin Garrick, University of Oxford

Venue - date
Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle, Western Australia - 7 February 2012

Full details of topics and speakers are available at the AARES web site here, or download a flier (pdf file) here. We're keen to get a diverse audience at the workshop, including researchers, government officers and people involved in program delivery.

Note that registrations for the event are not yet open. They will be available via the AARES web site, probably in October.
