A COMMUNITY ECONOMICS PERSPECTIVE ON COASTAL EROSION MANAGEMENT AgEcon
Kriesel, Warren; Turner, Steven C..
A proposed beach improvement project at Jekyll Island, Ga. is opposed by county residents on tax equity grounds. In addition to general revenue financing, user fees for this type of infrastructure improvement are investigated. User fees are found to be both financially and politically feasible.

A COUNTY-LEVEL MODEL OF MANUFACTURING PLANT RECRUITMENT WITH IMPROVED INDUSTRIAL SITE QUALITY MEASUREMENT AgEcon
Kriesel, Warren; McNamara, Kevin T..
Empirical analysis of manufacturing plant location requires the use of a single industrial site quality measure. Under hedonic price theory, the price of industrial sites can be explained by their quality characteristics. The estimated site price is included with ten other location factors in an ordered, categorical logit model of plant attraction to Georgia counties. The results inform public decision-makers of the relative impact of site location factors and how changes in location factors can alter the probability of attracting a manufacturing plant.

Alternative Housing Development Strategies in Georgia's Coastal Marshlands AgEcon
Kriesel, Warren; Mullen, Jeffrey D..
Coastal Georgia continues to experience extremely high population growth rates. People are attracted by coastal amenities, including pleasant views of the saltwater marshes. The real estate market has responded to population growth with a pattern of development that exhibits varying degrees of compatibility with the nearby marshland ecosystem. Among community leaders there is a need for information on development alternatives. Information has been generated from a hedonic price analysis that contains proximity to amenities and development design variables. We conclude that real estate developers have, under certain circumstances, an economic incentive to incorporate more open space in their design of residential subdivisions in marshland environments.

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.

MODELING THE DECISION TO BUY FLOOD INSURANCE: AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS FOR COASTAL AREAS AgEcon
Landry, Craig E.; Kriesel, Warren.
A perennial question about the NFIP is: how can participation be increased? An empirical analysis reveals that in coastal areas the voluntary participation rate is only nine percent and identifies important determinants of the insurance purchase decision. It suggests that insurance will not discourage undesirable risk management practices in coastal areas.

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 Relative Importance of the Green Industry in the U.S. Agricultural Economy AgEcon
Turner, Steven C.; Kriesel, Warren.
This article describes the relative size of the green industry within the U.S. economy and how it is linked to supporting industries through the volume of transactions and economic impact multipliers. This analysis was based on IMPLAN, an input-output model developed by the U.S. Forest Service. In terms of 1990 employment, the green industry was the second leading employer in United States production agriculture. In terms of output, the greenhouse and products sector ranked sixth within production agriculture, behind cattle, other livestock, grains, other crops and oil bearing crops.

THE TRADEOFFS IN ECOSYSTEM MANAGEMENT: THE CASE OF LOGGING AND RECREATION IN THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS AgEcon
Kriesel, Warren; English, Donald B.K..
The US Forest Service is adopting ecosystem management, but the potential impact on local economies is unknown. Analysis via a recursive system of regression equations reveals that some ecosystem management variables have an influence upon recreational visitation which, in turn, has a net negative impact on county employment levels.

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.
