[WEBINAR]: Market Failures and Their Environmental Consequences

EcoHealth Alliance Webinar Series

Market Failures and Their Environmental Consequences

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 12:00pm EST 

Presented by Dr. Yasha Feferholtz, EcoHealth Alliance
Most of the time, economic markets are beneficial to society, allowing people to exchange goods and services, creating value for everyone. During the last century, markets and economic development have also allowed most people around the globe to improve their livelihoods. However, from pollution to pandemics, there has never been a moment in history with more environmental concerns than today. Markets are not always beneficial for us and the environment, and many times markets – and their absence – make us worse off. Sometimes it is people’s actions through markets that fail to provide the highest welfare to societies, while other times, markets do not exist for some of the most important services that nature provides us, like clean air. This webinar will explore how the field of economics addresses some environmental issues such as market failures, how to think about these issues in economic terms, and the solutions the field of environmental economics proposes in order to solve these. The webinar will show how human, animal, and environmental health are all interconnected and how market failures have consequences on the them.
