Published since 1959, Resources is the world’s leading magazine for breakthrough environmental, energy, and natural resource ideas. Our timely content informs the public and provides insight for policymakers. Resources magazine, the Common Resources blog, Resources Radio podcast, and On the Issues newsletter are produced by Resources for the Future (RFF), an independent, nonprofit research institution that improves environmental, energy, and natural resource decisions through impartial economic research and policy engagement.
Articles, blog posts, and podcast episodes published in Resources magazine and on the Resources website are authored by researchers here at RFF and by other leaders in the field of environmental economics and policy.
The views offered in Resources are those of the individual authors and should not be attributed to RFF. RFF does not take institutional positions on specific legislative proposals.
