EFFICACY OF WATER TRADING UNDER ASYMMETRIC INFORMATION AND
IMPLICATIONS FOR TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION

The purpose of this paper is to develop a water allocation and technology adoption model under the prior appropriation doctrine
that recognizes informational asymmetry among water users and between water users and water authorities. We consider
informational asymmetry about the agent's type, defined by a mix of land quality and knowledge. Adverse selection is found to
significantly reduce the adoption of modern irrigation technology and to lead to less retirement of poor quality lands than under
full information. Further investigation shows that even with asymmetric information, incentives for water trades can exist and
lead to additional technology adoption with gains to all parties. Our results suggest that under asymmetric information, even a
thin...

STATEWIDE ECONOMIC AND FISCAL EFFECTS OF THE DIRECT REDUCTION OF IRON
ORE TO STEEL IN NORTHEAST MINNESOTA
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Maki,
Wilbur R.
The Minnesota Regional Development Simulation Laboratory (SIMLAB) was used to simulate statewide economic effects of
three iron mining industry options--revitalization of the Lower Great Lakes states steel industry, gradual liquidation of this
industry, and the direct reduction of iron ore to steel in Northeast Minnesota. Industry output, employment, and value added
indicators for the 1970 and 1977 years are compared with corresponding economic indicators for the 1980-2000 projection period.
Finally, mineral-related state tax revenue trends are presented. Changes in these trends which are associated with each of the three
iron mining industry options are projected for the 1980-89 period.

Optimal Allocation of Reservoir Water

The purpose of this paper is to determine the optimal allocation of reservoir water among consumptive and non-consumptive uses.
A non-linear mathematical programming model is developed to optimally allocate Lake Tenkiller water among competing uses
that maximize the net social benefit. A mass balance is used to determine the level and volume of water in the lake. This paper
examines the effect of water management on lake resources when recreational values are and are not included as control variables
in the optimization process. Results show that maintaining the lake level to the ‘normal lake level’ of 632 feet during the summer
months generates more recreational benefit rather than reducing the lake level by releasing water for hydro power generation.
