In this video, I discuss the economics of tree trimming, coastal real estate, moral hazard and FEMA and whether the people of South Dakota should be subsidizing coastal living. I also ask whether Wall Street should remain in flood prone Southern Manhattan.
The complete set of 8 economics videos are now posted here. I’m recording 3 a week so this set will grow large. In the description box, I try to sketch the big topics presented in each short talk. I’m hoping that these videos are a useful teaching tool for environmental economics and urban economics classes.
