"Averting Enforcement: Strategic Response to the Threat of Environmental Regulation"


Part of the seminar series in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics presented as part of the Bren School's National Science Foundation—sponsored PhD training program in economics and environmental science.


Professor Mansur's research examines how environmental regulations affect markets. He is especially interested in the interaction of tradable permit systems and recently restructured electricity markets. Professor Mansur's current research examines how electricity restructuring has enabled firms to behave strategically, causing inefficient production and affecting the environment. He teaches jointly at the Yale School of Management and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
