“Community Homogeneity and Revealed Preferences for Environmental Goods,” a paper by Associate Professor of Economics Julio Videras, was published in the April issue of the journal Contemporary Economic Policy.

 

In his paper, Videras examines the links between community homogeneity and the demand for environmental quality. In his study of data from California, Videras found that “communities that are more homogeneous in terms of race and educational attainment are more likely to support the public provision of environmental goods, after controlling for political ideology, voter turnout, and the distribution of benefits and costs across communities.” His analysis of the data also showed “nonmonotonic relationships between racial and social groups and support for the public provision of environmental amenities.”
