Research interests

Professor Bennett has over 30 years experience researching, consulting and teaching in the fields of Environmental Economics, Natural Resource Economics, Agricultural Economics and Applied Micro-Economics. His current research interests focus on:

  • the development and application of techniques to estimate the value of non-marketed environmental benefits and costs, and,
  • the analysis of alternative institutional structures that give private owners/managers of natural resources the incentive to provide environmental benefits.

Professor Bennett is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia and a Distinguished Fellow of the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society. Jeff was also President of that Society in 2002. He is a member of the Academic Advisory Council of the Centre for Independent Studies and an elected member of the Mont Pelerin Society. From 2007 to 2011, Jeff was Director of the Environmental and Economics Research Hub.
