Personal Profile of Edward Morey
- I am a professor in the Department of Economics at the University of
Colorado in Boulder. My teaching and research interests include environmental
economics, microeconomic theory, and econometrics. I have a particular
interest in nonmarket valuation; that is, valuing commodities that are
not directly bought and sold in the market place. This work spans demand
theory and the estimation of consumer's surplus. Topics include the random
components in utility and demand functions, the importance of individual
and commodity characteristics in explaining choice, the importance of time
costs, and corner solutions. My applied work includes estimating the consumer's
surplus different individuals associate with changes in the characteristics
and/or existence of ski areas, fishing sites, mountain bike trails, open
space and historical monuments.
- Current research interests include travel-cost models, contingent valuation,
conjoint analysis, and choice experiments.
- Fall semester 1998 I will be teaching "Natural Resource Economics"
to upper-level undergraduates (Econ 4535) and "Introduction to Quantitative
Analysis" to the first-year masters students (Econ 6808).
