I am an economist who has been studying water problems for a long time, especially ones dealing with water use, water scarcity, and water quality. Though my approach mainly reflects my professional training in economics, I have also found it quite useful to capitalize on the insights and methods of other fields, especially history, law, the natural sciences, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology. Water issues tend to have implications in all of these areas. By drawing on the insights and methods of multiple disciplines, I believe we can obtain a deeper understanding and come up with more effective solutions to many pressing water problems. My periodic postings, and the various other resources I will make available on this site, will reflect this multidisciplinary orientation. I hope you find these resources to be informative and useful.
