RESEARCH TOPICS
 
PROFILE
Jim Boyd’s research lies at the intersection of economics, ecology, and law, with a particular focus on the measurement and management of ecosystem goods and services. Boyd emphasizes the need to better coordinate economic and ecological research to improve the practical performance of green incentives, markets, and investments. He advocates and works on the practical design of a “green GDP”—national environmental accounts to capture and track the status of environmental public goods and services and measure the environmental consequences of economic growth.
