ResearchBlogCast #8: Protecting the Environment Reduces Poverty?

Each week Razib Khan, Dave Munger and I discuss a paper that was recently blogged on in the This week I chose the following article:

Andam, K., Ferraro, P., Sims, K., Healy, A., & Holland, M. (2010). Protected areas reduced poverty in Costa Rica and Thailand. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 107 (22), 9996-10001 DOI: 10.1073/pnas.0914177107

This paper will be a landmark in conservation policy and methodology, demonstrating how appropriate comparisons and controls actually matter when correlating socioeconomic data with protected areas.
