Economic Impacts of Local and Regional Food Systems: Response to Questions from May 20, 2013 Webinar

August 5, 2013

In May 2013, CRFS and the Union of Concerned Scientists hosted a webinar on the economic impact of local food.  The large number of participants prevented the hosts and experts from answering each question posed during the time allotted for the webinar; this brief provides responses to those unanswered questions.  CRFS coordinated responses from six economists who participated in the webinar.  The brief also includes a bibiography compiled by Jeff O'Hara, of the Union of Concerned Scientists, featuring recent studies that examine the economic impact of local food.
