"A Unifying Algebra of Green Consumption Technologies"

Resource economics Professor Nathan Chan published an article in the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists titled, "A Unifying Algebra of Green Consumption Technologies." This study outlines a unifying model of “green consumption technologies,” which mediate the household production of utility-conferring characteristics and externalities from available market goods. In the article, Chan explains, "The overarching contribution of this study is to present a rigorous, microfounded framework for evaluating policy and technological change."
