Green national accounting for welfare and sustainability:A Taxonomy Of Assumptions And Results

Geir B. Asheim ()

Scottish Journal of Political Economy, 2003, vol. 50, issue 2, pages 113-130

Abstract: This paper summarizes assumptions made and results obtained in parts of the literature on welfare and sustainability accounting. I consider five different assumptions that can be imposed independently of each other, producing 32 different combinations. This taxonomy is used to organize results in welfare and sustainability accounting. The analysis illustrates how stronger results require stronger assumptions and thereby impose harder informational requirements. Copyright (c) Scottish Economic Society 2003.
