Some interesting sites

The Ecosystem Marketplace, run by the 'Katoomba Group' (comprising government agencies, non-profit groups, businesses and academic institutions) is a source of information on markets and payment schemes for ecosystem services - services such as water quality, carbon sequestration and biodiversity. Their idea is that by providing solid information on prices, regulation, science, and other market-relevant issues, markets for ecosystem services will one day become a fundamental part of our economic and environmental system, helping give value to environmental services that have, for too long, been taken for granted.

Imagining Australia is a blog about Australian public policy, with an emphasis on economic policy.

The New Economist blog has some interesting pieces about global economic issues, from a London-based macroeconomist.
