Understanding how people value the environment or pollution is another major area of environmental economics – important to make the case for policy and to calibrate the appropriate level of policies such as taxes. Apart from an early article with Katarina Katz in 1990 (which was apparently just about the first valuation article in Sweden), I have mainly left the subject but sometimes collaborated with colleagues in Gothenburg who are more expert in the field.
