Paul Ferraro, associate professor of Economics at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, has received a Fulbright Scholar award to conduct research at Costa Rica’s Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza in the spring of 2012. According to an AYSPS news release, Ferraro’s research will support “an initiative to quantify the mechanisms through which environmental policies aimed at protecting endangered ecosystems affect environmental and economic outcomes.”
Much of Ferraro’s research focuses on the economic aspects of environmental policy. Below is a short list of his articles that are available through the Georgia State University Library:
