Oikos is back!

Happy new year everyone!

Oikos has been silent for some weeks now as work and the silly season swamped me - and then I had a holiday!

Anyway, I'm back and refreshed and Oikos will be back to regular posting (I'm aiming for daily).

A theme of interest this year will be markets: When do they work? When do they not work? What do they do well? What do they do badly? Environmental protection is something they generally don't do well, but why? And is this always the case? Can you create artificial markets in environmental services and how well do they work? What makes a good one?

I wish you all the best for 2007.

What a fantastic and useful theme for this year's posts, given the frequency of the argument that regulation is not needed as markets will self-correct. I look forward to reading them.
