Student Opinions

This class really gives a good overview of all of the ways to measure the value of resources, including stated preference studies (surveys, etc) to revealed preferences (market behavior), and more, with the main goal to determine whether a policy is economically viable or not.  The class moves quickly through these, and a familiarity with STATA and economics is pretty important.  Prof Vincent is very clear in his explanations and welcomes questions, creating a great learning environment.
