Professor Raymond's research focuses on environmental policy, especially market-based policy approaches. He studies how informal rules and social norms related to fairness, ownership, and environmental values affect environmental policy creation, policy change, and policy implementation. His work has covered a range of topics including policies on acid rain and climate change, energy conservation, environmental risk management, renewable fuels, conservation tillage, and biodiversity protection on private lands.
