Goldstein Memorial Lecture on Environmental Policy and Economics

October 20, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Global Burden of Disease study (Lancet 2015) estimates that 7.8 million people died in 2013 due to ambient and household air pollution, lack of access to safe water and sanitation, and exposure to lead. Over 90% of these deaths occurred in low and middle income countries. Can economic analysis help reduce this burden in a cost effective way?

JON HELLER GOLDSTEIN devoted 35 years to public service as an economist working tirelessly to improve the environment and reduce poverty through investment in human capital. In 1964, Dr. Goldstein earned his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Minnesota and went on to play several key roles in the Social Security Administration, Department of the Interior, and on the Endangered Species Committee. Dr. Goldstein’s distinguished career with the Department of the Interior, his seminal work on wetlands conservation, and numerous articles on the impact of federal programs on wetlands, will leave a lasting legacy on environmental policy.

The Jon Goldstein Memorial Lecture was established through
the generosity of the Richard and Ellen Sandor Family.
