Description

Having shown why the conflict between economic and environmental imperatives always has appeared inevitable, economist Stephan Kroll will reveal how new, clearer thinking over the last thirty years has produced the revolutionary discipline of environmental economics—a field now opening dramatic new perspectives on the real economic costs of environmental ignorance. The economic landscape is changing in ways that traditionally-trained bankers, insurers, financiers and entrepreneurs can no longer afford to ignore.

Kroll joined CSU Sacramento’s Department of Economics in 2003. His particular interest is in the behavioral and institutional underpinnings of environmental policies, in theory and in experiments. Courses Kroll teaches include Environmental Economics, Economics for Environmentalists and Experimental Economics.
