Neva R. Goodwin is Co-director of the Global Development And Environment Institute ("GDAE") at Tufts University, and Associate Professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. She is the author or editor of a dozen books and numerous articles. GDAE and the individual economists it employs have become widely known for their contributions to new thinking in economics.

Thomas Weisskopf, Director of the Residential College (for international students) at University of Michigan, has a distinguished record of publications that push on the boundaries of the neoclassical economics paradigm.

Frank Ackerman, an economist who joined GDAE in 1995, has extensive experience in both environmental research and popular writing. He is now Director of the Institute's division of Research and Policy.

Kelvin Lancaster, for many years a Professor of Economics at Columbia University (deceased in 1998), was a highly original thinker who formulated many provocative new insights in sophisticated mathematical terms, while clearly recognizing the different roles of mathematical and verbal expositions of basic economic principles. He is best known for the "theory of the second best" and for his contributions to consumer theory.
