Pannell Discussions is a blog that focuses on environmental economics, natural resource economics, agricultural economics, and related behavioural, scientific and policy issues. I occasionally indulge in posts on other completely different issues that I’m interested in.

In 2012, Pannell Discussions received the Quality of Research Communication Award from the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society.

David Pannell is Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics, and Director of the Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy, at The University of Western Australia. He was an ARC Federation Fellow 2007-2012.
