A STUDY ON SUBSTITUTION AND SEQUENCING EFFECTS USING CHECK-OFF MECHANISM AgEcon
Rudra, Bidisha; Keeler, Andrew G.; McIntosh, Christopher S..
Voluntary donations to non-game species protection through state income tax checkoffs are analyzed. An analogy between the contingent valuation method and check-off scheme is drawn by observing the existence of agenda effects in the latter. Results reveal that substitution and sequencing effects exist between species protection and other public goods.
Tipo: Conference Paper or Presentation Palavras-chave: Check-offs; Contingent Valuation; Substitution Effects; Sequencing Effects; Public Economics; Resource /Energy Economics and Policy.

Coastal Erosion Management from a Community Economics Perspective: The Feasibility and Efficiency of User Fees AgEcon
Kriesel, Warren; Landry, Craig E.; Keeler, Andrew G..
Coastal communities cannot depend on funding from the state or federal government to maintain high-quality beaches that benefit the public and attract tourist revenues. This article investigates the feasibility and efficiency of beach improvement projects at two Georgia barrier islands through the alternative funding mechanisms of general-revenue financing and user fees. Benefits are calculated from observable sources. The analyses presented support beach improvement as an effective policy on both islands under all scenarios considered.

COSTS OF COASTAL HAZARDS: EVIDENCE FROM THE PROPERTY MARKET AgEcon
Kriesel, Warren; Landry, Craig E.; Keeler, Andrew G..
A hedonic price model suggests that flooding and erosion hazards, and the actions taken against them, are major determinants of property values in American coastal areas. A zoning ordnance against new construction within the 60-year erosion hazard area would increase property values and perhaps conserve the coastal ecosystem.

EXPANDING THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM TO COVER COASTAL EROSION DAMAGE AgEcon
Keeler, Andrew G.; Kriesel, Warren; Landry, Craig E..
The National Flood Insurance Program does not currently cover damage strictly attributable to coastal erosion. This paper uses the results of a nationwide survey of coastal property owners to estimate the demand for such insurance. We find that there is significant demand at prices in the range of current flood insurance premiums. Demand is influenced in the hypothesized way by increased measures of erosion risk as well as by insurance price and income.

Expanding the National Flood Insurance Program to Cover Coastal Erosion Damage AgEcon
Keeler, Andrew G.; Kriesel, Warren; Landry, Craig E..
This paper uses the results of a nationwide survey of coastal property owners to estimate the demand for insurance against erosion damage. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) does not technically cover such damage, although in practice there is considerable uncertainty about this point. The ability to insure against such losses has implications for the choice of beach management strategies and for NFIP management. We find significant demand for insurance at prices in the range of current flood insurance premiums, although median willingness to pay appears to be less than cost of providing such insurance.

LABOR PRODUCTIVITY WITHIN THE AFRICAN AGRICULTURAL HOUSEHOLD: THE HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTION MODEL REVISITED AgEcon
Elad, Renata L.; Houston, Jack E.; Keeler, Andrew G.; Baker, Doyle Curtis.
The benchmark concept is used to understand changes in farm household response to development dynamics. 1996-97 cropping seasons data from Cameroon is used to develop and test a "separate spheres" household model. Labor productivity for men and women is discussed, along with their implications for research and resource management policies.

SCHOOL CHOICE IN RURAL GEORGIA: AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS AgEcon
Keeler, Andrew G.; Kriesel, Warren.
Previous empirical studies of school choice have been at the national level, or have focussed on northeastern states. We estimate the demand for private education in rural Georgia, using proportion of private school attendance as an indicator variable. We find that income, tuition, race and school quality are important choice determinants. The results provide useful information for rural school administrators, and suggest that a tuition tax credit would have to be substantial to cause a significant exodus from public schools.

THE ECONOMICS OF FLOW ENHANCEMENT VS. NUTRIENT CONTROLS IN MEETING WATER QUALITY STANDARDS AgEcon
Keeler, Andrew G.; Marbury, Leslie.
This paper explores the economics of using enhanced flow as part of a strategy to meet water quality standards. We begin by briefly sketching the relevant economic theory, which we then apply to a case study of a dissolved oxygen impaired stream segment in Georgia'’s Flint River Basin. Results show that meeting targeted water quality standards with strategies that include enhanced flow is significantly less costly than relying only on agricultural management practices.

The Future(s) of Pollution Control: The Case of the Acid Rain Program AgEcon
McLemore, Donna L.; Keeler, Andrew G.; Turner, Steven C..
This study examines the potential success of the futures contract in SO2 Emissions Allowances. Factors affecting the success of the futures contract are presented including the uncertainties of air pollution and public utility regulation, emission control technology, electricity demand, and electric utility needs for an allowance price discovery mechanism for long-range compliance planning under risk. If SO2 futures market is successful, there is some potential for expanding futures trading to other pollutants. Since SO2 is uniquely suited to a national market, duplication of SO2 futures for other pollutants may be difficult.

VALUING RISK-REDUCING INTERVENTIONS WITH HEDONIC MODELS: THE CASE OF EROSION PROTECTION AgEcon
Dorfman, Jeffrey H.; Keeler, Andrew G.; Kriesel, Warren.
This article extends the literature on economic valuation of public interventions that reduce environmental risk. We consider the case where risk-reducing interventions have different characteristics than the risk proxies used in hedonic regressions. We then demonstrate the importance of these considerations by reexamining an existing analysis of shoreline protection where we estimate risk using a latent variables model. The results show substantially different and arguably more plausible results.
