About My Slideshows

This annex is intended as a convenient interface for access to the slide shows that are a key feature of my blog. If you have landed in the annex by accident, click here to return to the main blog.

I originally intended the slide shows mainly for classroom use. If you teach economics at any level, I invite you to cut and paste them into your live lectures, incorporate them into your on-line courses, assign them to your students as readings, or use them in any way that works for you. If you like the slides, I invite you also to consider adopting my own textbook from BVT Publishing.

For general readers of my blog, the slide shows offer a way to explore a topic in greater depth than is possible in the basic post, through added data, graphs, pictures, and background theory and concepts. I hope all readers enjoy them.

The slide shows are published under Creative Commons license Attribution--Share Alike 3.0. That means you can share, transmit, distribute, or adapt the slides for any purpose, provided you cite Ed Dolan's Econ Blog as the source, and your resulting publication is not more restrictively licensed than the original.

Slideshow: Move Over Ethanol, Market Forces Favor CNG

The US government has spent billions in the elusive search for a "fuel of the future," that would be cheap, clean, and made in America. At the same time, it has given little attention to an off-the-shelf alternative, compressed natural gas (CNG), which is all of the above. This slideshow looks at the market forces that favor CNG and the barriers to its wider use.

Keywords: Energy, natural gas, CNG, elasticity, regulation.

  1. Kudos for your presentation here, for as an retired world-class helicopter driver, with 28-years involved in the search for such assets; I’ve been witness to, and participant in discovery and production of much of it, albeit; the subject-matter’s greatest detraction, is its very advantages – as has come to be the “rule of law” in this nation’s M.O., with an illegal alien White House squatter, using the Oval Office to decimate the greatest de jure state of governance in the history of Mankind, aided & abetted by legislative “leadership” who keep giving morons a bad name!!!

    God willing; His Son shall soon be back to cancel the lease, and square-away this diabolical nightmare!!!
