In the latest Pizza & Policy Forum, Georgia State University Professor Michael Price will outline his research on how policymakers and public utilities leverage insights from behavioral economics and field experiments to promote conservation efforts by residential households.

The event is open to the public and will take place from 11 a.m. to noon on April 13 in the Event Lounge on the first floor of Academic West (view campus map). A pizza lunch will be provided.  

Price has led collaborations with public utilities around the globe and private companies that work with public utilities to promote conservation behaviors. His results have been published in several leading journals in economics, including The American Economic Review, The Quarterly Journal of Economics, The Review of Economics and Statistics, the Journal of Public Economics, and the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists.  

Price is an associate professor in the Department of Economics at George State University and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.  

This event is co-sponsored by the Bucknell Institute for Public Policy (BIPP), Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment, Departments of Economics and Political Science and the Environmental Studies Program.
