EVALUATING THE COSTS OF ALTERNATIVE WATER QUALITY POLICIES: EFFLUENT CHARGES OR DIRECT CONTROLS?

Robert A. Solove, Gary D. Lynne and Thomas Spreen

No 271030, 1990 Annual meeting, August 5-8, Vancouver, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Estimates are provided of the costs of water quality improvements to agricultural producers in Florida. Cost was lower with a charge system than with direct controls. This finding is in contrast to that of Jacobs and Casler and the theoretical arguments of Buchanan and Tullock. The key factor is flexibility.
