“Causal effects between environment and economy”

Recent developments in econometrics offer new opportunities to understand the complex interactions between the natural environment and the economy. I summarize some of my recent research in this area. Topics include the impact of economic and regulatory policies on biodiversity; deforestation and health care costs caused by international trade; and the value of urban forests. I will focus on methodological innovations that help unravel causal relationships.
