Please put down the econometrics and step slowly away...

Well, how can economic rent be calculated? What data is used, where can
it be obtained, what tools/formulas are used in its calculation, etc.

Hello Quirk,
I am still not clear what you mean by economic rent.
As far as I can remember know we have rent on labor which is wage and
rent on capital which is
the interest rate. Is this more or less what you mean by economic rent?
Or maybe I am not knowledgable enough about the notion 'economic rent'.
please correct me if I am mistaken.

Land Rent, in particular, is the clearest form, since land value is not
the result of any individuals productivity, incomes derived from land
rent are a burden on the market.

I don't know who these two (or the other six members) are and there is no activity on this particular Google Group. Kinda scary, though...
