Community Action and Pest Control AgEcon
Davis, Rex; Harrison, Stephen R..
Several authors have recognised pests as a negative common property resource. As a common property issue, there are often benefits to be gained in regional coordination of pest control activities. Entomologists have also recognised the potential benefits from regional coordination programs and have encouraged areawide Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies. However, despite the acknowledgment of differences between individual and regional economic thresholds, studies have not been conducted into the conditions that ensure or prevent collective action in pest control. This is surprising given the vast amount of literature on collective action theory and practice that has accumulated since the work of Mancur Olson. This paper discusses pest control and...

Empirical investigation of investment behaviour in Australia's pastoral region AgEcon
Agbola, Frank W.; Harrison, Stephen R..
Optimal intertemporal investment behaviour ofAustralian pastoralists is modelled using panel data for the period 1979–1993.Results indicate that quasi-fixity of inputs of labour, capital, sheep numbers and cattle numbers is characteristic of production in the pastoral region. It takes about two years for labour, four years for capital and a little over two years for both sheep numbers and cattle numbers to adjust towards long-run optimal levels. Results also indicate that, after accounting for adjustment costs, own-price product supply and input demand responses are inelastic in both the short and long run.

Environmental Regulations of Land-use and Public Compensation: Principles with Swiss and Australian Examples AgEcon
Seidl, Irmi; Tisdell, Clement A.; Harrison, Stephen R..
This paper discusses regulation of rural land-use and compensation, both of which appear to have become more common but also more disputed. The implications of contemporary theories in relation to this matter are examined. Coverage includes the applicability of new welfare economics, the relevance of the neoclassical theory of politics, and the implications of contemporary theories of social conflict resolution and communication. Examining case studies of Swiss and Australian regulation of the use of rural properties and the ensuing conflicts, it is found that many decisions reflect a mixture of these elements. Rarely, if ever, are social decisions in this area made solely on the basis of welfare economics, for instance social cost-benefit analysis. Only...

OPTIMAL GROWTH STRATEGIES FOR PASTORAL FIRMS IN THE QUEENSLAND BRIGALOW SCHEME AgEcon
Harrison, Stephen R.; Longworth, John W..
The Brigalow Scheme has been one of Australia's largest dryland development projects since World War II. Large sums of private and public capital have been invested to create 247 new farm firms. Planning the development of these new properties is a complex task. A simulation model of the typical block in Area III of the Brigalow Scheme has been constructed and used to evaluate experimentally the financial performance of various growth strategies. Use of a conjugate directions search procedure with this model has allowed growth strategies to be identified which maximize net worth subject to a low risk of financial failure. These strategies are compared with development programmes which have already been implemented. Significant conclusions are reached both...

Resource Economics and the Environment AgEcon
Harrison, Stephen R.; Tisdell, Clement A..
Recently, a number of specialty areas have developed dealing with the economics of natural systems, resources and the environment. These include natural resource economics, environmental economics, ecological economics and bioeconomics. As well, new government departments, research institutes and tertiary courses have evolved in these areas. This paper examines the evolution and characteristics of the new areas of specialisation, and their relationship with the more traditional discipline of agricultural economics. Environmental economics is viewed as a wider interdisciplinary field than natural resource economics, and ecological economics or bioeconomics is depicted as a branch of natural resource economics dealing with living resources.
