  • Individualized Geocoding in Stated Preference Questionnaires: Implications
           for Survey Design and Welfare Estimation
    • Abstract: An expanding literature addresses the relevance of spatial factors for the estimation of stated preference (SP) willingness to pay (WTP).1 This literature establishes that welfare effects are often spatially heterogeneous, that this heterogeneity is often policy relevant, and that the form of this heterogeneity depends on a variety of factors (Bateman, Day, et al. 2006; Campbell, Hutchinson, and Scarpa 2009; Johnston and Ramachandran 2014; Schaafsma, Brouwer, and Rose 2012). These factors include the type of good, the availability of substitutes, directionality, borders or geopolitical thresholds, and whether WTP is dominated by use or nonuse values (Bateman, Day, et al. 2006; Bateman, Langford, et al. 2000; ...

  • A Production Function Analysis of Fisheries and Habitat: Open Access
           versus Optimal Management
    • Abstract: Over recent decades there has been increasing apprehension regarding global fisheries (Myers and Worm 2003). Though most of the research and analysis has focused on the direct impact of overfishing, indirect effects upon fish resources have increasingly been highlighted, such as habitat alteration or destruction (Tillin et al. 2006; Kaiser et al. 2000; Shephard, Brophy, and Reid 2010). Yet, the fact that destructive fishing practices may be harming the fisheries themselves has received scant attention (Armstrong and van den Hove 2008) and raises many questions as to how we manage our fisheries. In this paper we show, using a bioeconomic production function model, how the impacts of exogenous negative ... Read More

  • Is the German Retail Gasoline Market Competitive?: A Spatial-Temporal
           Analysis Using Quantile Regression
    • Abstract: Fluctuations in gasoline prices pose an ongoing source of consternation among motorists and politicians, one that typically centers on the suspicion that the price is not set competitively but rather is subject to manipulation on the part of the major fuel brands. Such suspicion has long reigned in Germany, leading the Federal Cartel Office to undertake a study in 2011 on the setting of retail gasoline prices (Bundeskartellamt 2011). The study, which descriptively analyzes data compiled from 407 gas stations located in four major cities between 2007 and 2010, concludes that five brands—Aral (BP), Jet (ConocoPhilipps), Esso (ExxonMobil), Shell, and Total—exercise market-dominating influence as oligopolists ...

  • Economic Valuation of Environmental Quality Using Property Auction Data: A
           Structural Estimation Approach
    • Abstract: Precise economic evaluation of environmental quality is an important task in implementing efficient environmental policies. For example, for a policy that can affect the environmental quality of residential properties, the hedonic price approach is quite often employed in the literature to measure the potential economic benefit from the policy. There are two types of hedonic approach: one is a structural approach based on Rosen’s (1974) work on the economic analysis of market behavior for goods with heterogeneous characteristics, and the other is a quasi-experimental hedonic method that estimates the pure causal effects of environmental changes on property prices. Consider a situation where one wants to ... Read More

  • What Drives the Reuse of Municipal Wastewater?: A County-Level
           Analysis of Florida
    • Abstract: Water reuse, which is the use of treated wastewater for beneficial purposes such as in industrial production, augmenting drinking water supplies, and irrigating residential lawns, farms, and golf courses, has been adopted at an increasing rate in the United States by both the public and private sectors. In California, reuse of municipal wastewater increased from 175,000 acre-feet in 1970 to 515,000 acre-feet in 2003, while in Florida, water reuse capacity has almost tripled between 1992 and 2012 (FDEP 1992; FDEP 2012). Studies predict that a more widespread adoption of water reuse practices can significantly increase the nation’s total available water resources; a recent report by the National Research ...

  • The Impact of Residential Development Pattern on Wildland Fire Suppression
           Expenditures
    • Abstract: Firefighters have an old saying that three things drive cost and risk: wood, weather, and homes. While fire suppression and drought have left the woods and weather in dangerous condition, it’s the homes that make fires so expensive to fight. Rising wildland fire suppression expenditures have been problematic for federal land management agencies for at least 20 years (USDA-
      DOI 1995; USDA 2010; NIFC 2014a). Expenditures reached unprecedented levels in the last decade, with average expenditures from 2000 to 2013 being 250% higher than from 1985 to 1999, and with suppression expenditures exceeding $1 billion in 12 of 14 years between 2000 and 2013 (NIFC 2014a). The increase in expenditures is attributed to ... Read More

  • Nudges, Social Norms, and Permanence in Agri-environmental Schemes
    • Abstract: Agri-environmental schemes (AESs) have been used in the European Union, United States, and Australia to address a wide range of environmental issues, from the conservation of biodiversity to water quality enhancement and landscape protection. These schemes are based on individual contracts signed with farmers who volunteer to implement proenvironmental management practices in return for an annual payment. This payment is calculated so as to compensate average compliance costs and foregone farming revenue due to the adoption of new management practices. Budgets dedicated to AESs are significant and are therefore under public scrutiny. Over the 2007–2013 financial period, total payments made by the European ... Read More

  • Efficiency of Viable Groundwater Management Policies
    • Abstract: Groundwater represents roughly 96% of the world’s unfrozen freshwater resources and approximately 60% of the groundwater extracted is used for agriculture (Jousma and Roelofsen 2004). Depletion of these resources is of great concern throughout the world, especially where extraction consistently outstrips natural recharge. For example, there are many areas throughout the world where aquifers face depletion, such as the Ogallala Aquifer, the Central Valley of California in the United States, the North China Plains Aquifer (Qui 2010), and a series of shallow aquifers, including the Neogene and Dammam Aquifers in eastern Saudi Arabia. These aquifers are in danger mainly because the irrigation needs in these ... Read More

  • Global Food Demand and Carbon-Preserving Cropland Expansion under Varying
           Levels of Intensification
    • Abstract: Two related challenges confront humanity in the twenty-first century: how to meet the food demands of a global population that will surpass 9 billion by 2050, and how to minimize losses in human welfare from climate change. Agricultural production is responsible for over 25% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; about half of the ice-free land area of Earth is used as cropland or for pasture (Tilman and Clark 2014). Converting land from natural vegetation to cultivation reduces the amount of carbon that is stored in the landscape, contributing to increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and magnified climate change (Millennium Ecosystem Assessment 2005). We address these ... Read More

  • Assessing Cost-effectiveness of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and
           Interactions between the CRP and Crop Insurance
    • Abstract: Conservation effectiveness when facing resource constraints is a central theme in the environmental conservation literature. Cost-benefit analysis has been advocated as a basic tool to enhance conservation effectiveness (Ando and Mallory 2012; Murdoch et al. 2010; Arrow et al. 1996). This article focuses on the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), the largest land retirement program supported by the U.S. federal government. It shows that the CRP’s effectiveness can be significantly enhanced by appropriate use of cost-benefit targeting and by accounting for interactions between the CRP and the federal crop insurance program (FCIP), the largest U.S. agricultural commodity subsidy program. The CRP is ... Read More
