EVALUATING NATIONAL POLICY BY CONTINGENT VALUATION

Warren Kriesel and Alan Randall

No 278156, 1986 Annual Meeting, July 27-30, Reno, Nevada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: The contingent valuation method is extended to policy valuation via two innovations: a model where the citizen evaluates the impact that policy has, and registers her willingness to pay by a voting procedure. Estimated annual national benefits from a proposed policy to reduce air and water pollution loads by 257 exceed $61 billion.
