We conduct macroeconomic studies of the linkages between the resource sectors and the overall economy, financial petroleum funds, and optimal fiscal policy strategies. We also work with resource economics, including microeconomic studies of the incentive structure within the resource businesses and the effect of regulations. A key feature of the overwhelming majority of this research is policy relevance.
