  • The Land Value Gradient in a (Nearly) Collapsed Urban Real Estate Market
    • Abstract: Its recent declaration of bankruptcy has brought the city of Detroit, Michigan, to the forefront in the media as well as among policy makers and researchers. Years of business and population exodus have resulted in thousands of parcels of vacant land, some of which are offered for sale every year. These vacant property sales provide an opportunity to explore the pattern of land values across the city. The stylized monocentric city model generates a land value gradient that declines the farther the parcel is from the city center. While there are numerous examples of exceptions to this general framework in the real world, the model has been a very useful tool for urban economists.Does a city in significant decline ...

  • Disability Discrimination in the Italian Rental Housing Market: A Field
           Experiment with Blind Tenants
    • Abstract: Disabled people are legally protected against discrimination in both labor and housing markets. Article 21 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, 2000, states that any discrimination based on disability and other grounds shall be prohibited. However, several economic studies provide evidence that the disabled are discriminated against in the labor market (for a literature review, see Jones 2008). Unfortunately, economics scholars have neglected to study disability discrimination in the housing market, and this issue deserves attention: a home is a primary necessity that determines social inclusion, job opportunities, and enjoyment of public services.The first contribution of this study is that ...

  • Empirics on the Long-Run Effects of Building Energy Codes in the Housing
           Market
    • Abstract: In the light of warnings about the accelerating pace of global climate change, politicians are paying increased attention to sustainability, resource, and energy efficiency issues. Many countries are seeking to restructure their energy supply systems and stimulate energy efficiency investment. In this context, residential housing plays an important role, since, according to International Energy Agency (IEA) data, it accounts for up to 40% of final energy needs in developed countries. The lion's share of residential energy demand stems from heating and cooling (for a comprehensive overview about global energy use patterns, see Johansson et al. 2012). Politicians in the European Union are especially focused on the ... Read More

  • Household Water Demand Seasonal Elasticities: A Stone-Geary Model under an
           Increasing Block Rate Structure
    • Abstract: Since the mid-2000s, urban water managers in many areas of the United States have faced declining single-family residential (SFR) water use, and overall U.S. municipal use has been declining (Donnelly and Cooley 2015; McGlade 2015). While such trends have positive aspects given stresses on regional water supplies, the causes are poorly understood, and utilities have been scrambling to stabilize their revenues and improve their ability to project future water and infrastructure needs. Clearer understanding of household water consumption behavior is needed to achieve more accurate projections of future demand.Increasing water supply variability under climate change presents urban water managers with many challenges. ...

  • Producer Responses to Surface Water Availability and Implications for
           Climate Change Adaptation
    • Abstract: Widespread consensus now exists that climate change is occurring (Stocker et al. 2013). Changes in precipitation and temperature patterns are expected to have substantial impacts on agricultural systems (Mendelsohn, Nordhaus, and Shaw 1994; Schlenker, Hanemann, and Fisher 2005; Deschenes and Greenstone 2007; Schlenker and Roberts 2009; Massetti and Mendelsohn 2011), but the size and nature of these impacts will depend not only on how the climate changes, but also on the ability of producers to adapt (Connor et al. 2009). Irrigated agriculture accounts for almost half of all agricultural revenue in the United States (USDA 2017), yet due to data limitations and other estimation challenges, there exists a gap in the ...

  • Firm Visibility and Voluntary Environmental Behavior: Evidence from
           Hydraulic Fracturing
    • Abstract: This paper studies how firm visibility affects oil and gas firms' voluntary disclosure of hydraulic fracturing information to Frac-Focus, a website created by public-private joint efforts in response to social pressure.1 Hydraulic fracturing involves injecting large volumes of fluids, including chemicals, into rock formations to create fractures through which oil and gas may be extracted. This industrial process has revolutionized the natural gas industry in the United States, but it has also generated environmental concerns. FracFocus is a response to the call for oil and gas firms to disclose the ingredients they use to fracture wells. Disclosure to FracFocus was initially voluntary in all states and has ... Read More

  • Conservation versus Equity: Can Payments for Environmental Services
           Achieve Both'
    • Abstract: Payments for environmental services (PES) aim to create, conserve, and restore natural resources by creating a market in which buyers compensate providers who voluntarily accept to forgo benefits in order to provide a well-defined service (Alix-Garcia, De Janvry, and Sadoulet 2008; Jack, Kousky, and Sims 2008; Muradian et al. 2010; Engel, Pagiola, and Wunder 2008; Pascual et al. 2010). Although PES are proposed as an efficient instrument to promote conservation compared to traditional command-and-control mechanisms (Pagiola, Arcenas, and Platais 2005), critics argue that PES are regressive, as they privilege a few large-scale landholders, who are often the least-cost suppliers of environmental services (Pascual et ...

  • Disentangling Effects of Policy Reform and Environmental Changes in the
           Norwegian Coastal Fishery for Cod
    • Abstract: The Northeast Arctic (NEA) cod (Gadus morhua) fishery in the Barents Sea was as of 2016 the most valuable whitefish fishery in the world. Dried cod from Lofoten has been a highly priced export commodity since the Viking ages. Today, Russia and Norway agree on the annual total allowable catch (TAC) quota and its distribution. While the Russian and European fleets (obtaining roughly 50%–60% of the total TAC) predominantly consist of trawlers, this is not the case for the Norwegian fleet. Rather, the bulk is smaller boats with passive gear that exploit the cod's impressive spawning migration to the coastal areas, especially around Lofoten. Access to this coastal fishery was basically open, and the international TAC ... Read More

  • Return on Capital and Management Reforms in Norway's Fisheries
    • Abstract: Many fisheries the world over have now been put under some form of individual transferable quota (ITQ) management.1 In Norway this has happened gradually and with much reluctance. Quotas of boats that are decommissioned can be transferred to other boats, but with restrictions. Quotas and other fishing rights such as concessions that have been transferred appear in the accounts of firms as assets whose value is determined by the price at which they were purchased. Purchased quotas can be retained only for a limited number of years, usually 20, and can be depreciated over that time.The scenario in fisheries that have been put under ITQ management is by now well known. There is consolidation of the fishing fleet as ... Read More
