It seems to be a common misconception that economics is about finance or it is about putting dollar values on things that don't come with price tags. Really, though, economics s about the use, distribution and conservation of RESOURCES. Our Staff includes people from a range of scientific disciplines, including economics, biology, forestry, hydrology and computer science.
