Land Economics is dedicated to the study of land use, natural resources, public utilities, housing, and urban land issues.
Established in 1925 by the renowned economist and founder of the American Economic Association, Richard T. Ely, at the University of Wisconsin, Land Economics has consistently published innovative, conceptual, and empirical research of direct relevance to economists. Each issue brings the latest results in international applied research on such topics as transportation, energy, urban and rural land use, housing, environmental quality, public utilities, and natural resources.
In addition to regular articles, there are comments on previously published articles, followed by replies from the original author. There are also book reviews of a few select recent releases, plus a full listing of books received.

Land Economics Editor wins Reimer Lüst Award
Professor and editor of Land Economics, Daniel W. Bromley has received the Reimer Lüst Award for International Scholarly and Cultural Exchange. The award is given by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation to recognize outstanding humanities scholars and social scientists who have promoted bilateral relations between Germany and their own countries.
Bromley, an emeritus professor of agricultural and applied economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, found out about the award, fittingly, in November while teaching at Humboldt University of Berlin.
“I was really stunned,” Bromley says.
Award winners are invited to spend up to a year in Germany and given 50,000 Euros ($74,000) to help with expenses. They also have the opportunity to conduct research projects of their choosing with specialist colleagues in Germany. The award will be given at a June ceremony hosted by the president of Germany. Only two awards are given annually.
