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


August 5, 2013 - <$authorEmail>

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.

The May 20th webinar recording and presentation slides are also available for viewing on the CRFS website.
