InÂ this video, Â 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. Â I also ask whether Wall Street should remain in flood prone Southern Manhattan.
The complete set of 8 economics videos areÂ now posted here. Â I’m recording 3 a week so this set will grow large. Â In the description box, I try to sketch the big topics presented in each short talk. Â I’m hoping that these videos are a useful teaching tool for environmental economics and urban economics classes.
