Welcome to Economics 255

Good morning everyone and welcome back to Lexington. We will be using this blog to conduct a conversation outside of class. Once or twice a week I will post an article (typically from the popular press) and you will be required to read and comment on the article. The best posts are usually critical of something in the article, draw on something discussed in class, or build on a previous comment by one of your classmates.

Your first assignment is to open an account (if you don't already have one), then introduce yourself to the class. Tell us a little about yourself, if you have any relevant experience in the area of resource economics/policy/management, and what you hope to learn throughout the semester.

Stay tuned.....
