Mark Budolfson

Mark Budolfson received his PhD from Princeton, and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford. His current research includes work on environmental philosophy, the legitimacy of international institutions, and general issues at the interface of ethics and public policy, especially in connection with collective action problems such as climate change and other dilemmas that arise in connection with common resources and public goods.


 Ethicists, economists, and others have developed a set of useful tools for deciding what to do when economic, environmental, and social values conflict.
