VALUING MARGINAL CHANGES IN THE QUALITY OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL ASSET

LeRoy Hansen () and Daniel Hellerstein ()

No 20414, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: We present a model that extends the replacement cost theory to cases where benefits are restored for multiple years. Our theoretical framework derives a functional relationship between investments expenditures and environmental benefits. By extending the investment framework, we model reservoir benefits as a function of marginal changes in soil erosion.
