Competition-Based Environmental Policy: An Analysis of Farmland Preservation in Maryland 31
Horowitz, John K.; Lynch, Lori; Stocking, Andrew.
This paper studies bidder behavior in an innovative program in which farmers compete to sell their development rights to the State. We derive a reduced form bidding model that includes both private value and common value components. This model allows us to estimate the role of bidder competition, the winner’s curse correction, and the underlying distribution of private values. We find that competition reducelers adjust for a possible winner’s curse by increasing their bids by roughly 10 percent over their reservation values. Using the inferred reservation values, we compare this program to an alternative take-it-or-leave-it offer. We find that a take-it-or-leave-it offer of 50 percent of development values would have preserved more farmland for an...

Costs of adjustment to climate change 31
Quiggin, John C.; Horowitz, John K..
The present paper argues that the costs of climate change are primarily adjustment costs. The central result is that climate change will reduce welfare whenever it occurs more rapidly than the rate at which capital stocks (interpreted broadly to include natural resource stocks) would naturally adjust through market processes. The costs of climate change can be large even when lands are close to their climatic optimum, or evenly distributed both above and below that optimum.

DIMINISHING MARGINAL VALUE 31
Horowitz, John K.; List, John A.; McConnell, Kenneth E..
The notion of diminishing marginal value has had a profound impact on the development of neoclassical theory. Early neoclassical scholars had considerable difficulty convincing contemporaries of the new paradigm's value until political economists, including Jevons and Walras, used the critical assumption of diminishing marginal value to link utility and demand. While diminishing marginal value remains a key component of modern economic intuition, there is surprisingly little empirical verification of its existence or level. This paper gathers field data across a myriad of subject pools--from undergraduate students to PTA members to sportscard enthusiasts--to examine several aspects of preferences in both price and exchange institutions. Examining behavior...

GETTING THE MOST FOR OUR MONEY IN FARMLAND PRESERVATION 31
Horowitz, John K.; Lynch, Lori.
This paper looks at the design and operation of the main program in Maryland, the Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation Fund (MALPF). We examine the features of the program in comparison to possible alternative designs. Our broader purpose is to examine the nature of farmland preservation and the implications for how to best design farmland preservation programs.

"No-Till" Farming Is a Growing Practice 31
Horowitz, John K.; Ebel, Robert M.; Ueda, Kohei.
Most U.S. farmers prepare their soil for seeding and weed and pest control through tillage—plowing operations that disturb the soil. Tillage practices affect soil carbon, water pollution, and farmers’ energy and pesticide use, and therefore data on tillage can be valuable for understanding the practice’s role in reaching climate and other environmental goals. In order to help policymakers and other interested parties better understand U.S. tillage practices and, especially, those practices’ potential contribution to climate-change efforts, ERS researchers compiled data from the Agricultural Resource Management Survey and the National Resources Inventory-Conservation Effects Assessment Project’s Cropland Survey. The data show that approximately 35.5 percent...
