Valuing Reduced Acid Deposition Injuries to Cultural Resources: Marble Monuments in Washington, DC

Edward Morey (), Kathleen Greer Rossmann and Lauraine G. Chestnut

Chapter 11 in Valuing Cultural Heritage, 2002 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: What value do we place on our cultural heritage, and to what extent should we preserve historic and culturally important sites and artefacts from the ravages of weather, pollution, development and use by the general public? This innovative book attempts to answer these important questions by exploring how non-market valuation techniques – used extensively in environmental economics – can be applied to cultural heritage. The book includes twelve comprehensive case studies that estimate public values for a diverse set of cultural goods, including English cathedrals, Bulgarian monasteries, rock paintings in Canada, statues in the US, and a medieval city in Africa.
