THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF RESERVING FEDERAL LAND FOR BIODIVERSITY PROTECTION IN THE U.S. PACIFIC NORTHWEST

No 20288, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: We empirically investigate the effects of the Northwest Forest Plan on two widely-used economic indicators: employment growth and net migration. We find weak evidence that that setting aside 10 million acres of productive forest land for biodiversity protection had a large, but short-lived effect on employment growth.
