research overview

  • Zack's field of research is natural resource economics. Broadly, his goal is to investigate how the governance of natural resources affects management and economic outcomes. These outcomes are affected by the assignment of property rights and how well governing institutions respond to dynamic economic and social factors. Therefore, his research also analyzes the robustness of private, collective, and public governance institutions to changes in the environmental and social preferences.
