One of the minor benefits of the recent wave of environmental concern is that arguments about technological externalities and unpriced resources are sufficiently familiar to require no reiteration or elaboration before a group of economists. Consequently we need not spend time explaining that there are interesting economic issues in the environmental field, but can go right to the background of our approach.
