Sustainability Tuesday

Please check the syllabus for two new articles. One is a short comment by Bob Solow on Sustainability and the other is article is from RFF. Here is a link to the updated syllabus.

Also, notice we do not have class this coming Thursday - I will be at NC State attending a climate economics workshop.

It is interesting to look at sustainability in the view of Solow. I agree that it is unrealistic to leave the world exactly as it was for the future. The idea of leaving future generations the capacity to be as well off as us is quite realistic. This will take research and desire for knowledge, but it is an attainable goal.

I agree with Patterson, the Solow article was based on a simple thought, yet everyone seems to disregard it when considering the future.
