In a departure from past contingent valuation research of groundwater quality, this paper estimates a damage function for nitrate exposures based on actual water test results of individual wells. From the perspective of reliability, it is argued that such a full information approach more closely represents the goal of valuation research in this area -to estimate the economic values that people would place on improving water quality if they were actually experiencing contaminated water. The adoption of a damage function approach linking willingness to pay to actual exposures is also more useful to policy makers at the study site because it potentially provides benefit information to a broad range of policy options. Finally, because the damage function is... Tipo: Working or Discussion Paper Palavras-chave: Resource /Energy Economics and Policy. Ano: 1997 URL: http://purl.umn.edu/7262 DEMAND FOR WILDLIFE HUNTING IN BRITISH COLUMBIA Provedor de dados: 31 Autores: Sun, Lili; van Kooten, G. Cornelis; Voss, Graham M. We present estimates of the demand for hunting licenses by residents and non residents in British Columbia for the period 1971â 2000. We obtain estimates of both short-run and long- run price elasticities and discuss their revenue implications for future fee increases. We find the demand by non residents to be strongly correlated with U.S. income variation over the business cycle, but find no such role for cyclical income variation for resident hunters. The ability of the government to increase revenues from resident hunters turns out to be limited, particularly in the long run, while greater opportunities exist to raise revenues from U.S. hunters as short- and long-run price elasticities of demand are quite inelastic. We argue that conservation surcharges... Tipo: Working or Discussion Paper Palavras-chave: Demand and Price Analysis; Resource /Energy Economics and Policy. Ano: 2004 URL: http://purl.umn.edu/18153 Challenges to Producer Ownership of Ethanol and Biodiesel Production Facilities Provedor de dados: 31 Autores: Kenkel, Philip L.; Holcomb, Rodney B. This study examines the rapidly expanding biofuels industry and identifies challenges for producer-owned biofuel projects. The U.S. ethanol industry has been growing rapidly, and biodiesel production is poised for similar growth. Producer involvement is driven by the desire to add value to farm commodities and the impact of biofuel projects on local grain prices. Local state and federal incentives have also stimulated producer interest. The long-run profitability of biofuel projects is driven by feedstock availability, access to market centers for biofuels, access to markets for coproducts, and utility costs and availability. The rapidly increasing size and scale of ethanol and biodiesel plants make it difficult for producers to fund these projects....
