Here at Debate Central, we’re committed to bringing you top-quality debate resources that you won’t find anywhere else. That’s why we have commissioned a special paper by a leading environmental economist on the 2014-2014 policy/CX debate topic: “Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its non-military exploration and/or development of the Earth’s oceans.” This paper takes a look at the relationship between economic theory and the resolution, in order to provide you with brand new evidence that is completely topic-specific!
This year’s expert is Dr. Michael D. Stroup, a professor of economics at Stephen F. Austin State University and noted research expert on the intersection between economics and environmental quality. Find it below the fold!
Dr. Stroup introduces you to the economic background for next year’s resolution.
We hope you enjoy this special paper, and don’t forget to keep checking back for more resources throughout the year!
