Invasive Species and Delaying the Inevitable: Results from a Pilot Valuation Experiment

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 2007, vol. 39, issue Special, 15

Abstract: Herein we explore the economic value of delaying inevitable environmental damage due to aquatic invasive species, which is a problem especially relevant to tropic and subtropical regions. We developed an analytical framework and tested it using a stated preference survey. The results suggest that delaying the impacts can be valuable. Other tests reveal characteristics of the willingness-to-pay estimates that are consistent with economic theory.
