CASINOS IN THE UPPER MIDWEST: A DISCUSSION OF THE IMPACTS AgEcon
Bangsund, Dean A.; Leistritz, F. Larry.
The recent expansion and proliferation of legalized casino gaming has spurred debate at all levels of government. As a result, a number of studies have attempted to quantify many of the economic, social, and fiscal impacts of legalized casino gaming. This study reviewed existing literature on the effects of casino gaming in the Upper Midwest and discussed some of the issues associated with casino activities. The impacts of casino gaming have generally been evaluated at either the local and/or state or regional level. Positive economic impacts have been quantified more often than negative economic impacts. Few studies have attempted to quantify the social costs of casino gaming. The economic impacts of casino activities on local economies have generally...

Conceptualizing and Operationalizing Social Resilience within Commercial Fisheries in Northern Australia Ecology and Society
Marshall, Nadine A; CSIRO; nadine.marshall@csiro.au; Marshall, Paul A; Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority; p.marshall@gbrmpa.gov.au.
How can we tell whether resource-dependent people are socially resilient to institutional change? This question is becoming increasingly important as demand for natural resources escalates, requiring resource managers to implement policies that are increasingly restrictive on resource users. Yet policy changes are frequently made without a good understanding of the likely social and economic consequences. Knowledge of the resilience of resource users to changes in resource-use policies can assist in the design and implementation of policies that minimize the impacts on people while maximizing the sustainability of ecosystem goods and services. Despite the appeal of resilience as a framework for sustaining human-environment relations, there has been a...

Local Social and Environmental Impacts of Biofuels: Global Comparative Assessment and Implications for Governance Ecology and Society
German, Laura; Center for International Forestry Research; University of Georgia; L.GERMAN@cgiar.org; Schoneveld , George C.; Center for International Forestry Research; G.Schoneveld@cgiar.org; Pacheco, Pablo; Center for International Forestry Research; p.pacheco@cgiar.org.
The 2000s witnessed the rapid expansion of biofuel plantations in the global South in the context of a growing trend of crop plantation expansion. This trend has been spurred by policies in the European Union, United States, Brazil, and other countries favoring the use of biofuels in the transport sector to enhance energy security and reduce carbon emissions, as well as by the desire of governments in developing countries to harness the stimulus that new commercial investments provide to the agricultural sector and to national economies. Despite these potential benefits, a number of concerns have been raised about the local social and environmental impacts of biofuel feedstock expansion. We shed light on this debate through a synthesis of findings from...

The likely regional impacts of an agricultural emissions policy in New Zealand: Preliminary analysis AgEcon
Sin, Isabelle; Brunton, Emma; Hendy, Joanna; Kerr, Suzi.
Hendy and Kerr (2005b) find that an emissions charge on agricultural methane and nitrous oxide of $25 per tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent would be likely to reduce New Zealand‘s net land-use related emissions for commitment period one in the order of 3%, with full accounting. The costs per farmer and as a percentage of profit would be very high. This paper considers the regional impacts of such a policy in New Zealand by allocating the emission charge across space according to the location of animals. We then combine our emissions charge information with data on the socio-economic characteristics of the affected areas. Obviously rural areas are heavily affected. In many respects, for example median income, ethnic mix, and percentage of working...

The Social and Environmental Impacts of Biofuel Feedstock Cultivation: Evidence from Multi-Site Research in the Forest Frontier Ecology and Society
German, Laura; Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR); L.GERMAN@cgiar.org; Schoneveld , George C.; Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR); G.Schoneveld@cgiar.org; Pacheco, Pablo; Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR); p.pacheco@cgiar.org.
Preoccupation with global energy supplies and climate change in the global North, and a desire to improve the balance of trade and capture value in the emerging carbon market by developing countries, together place biofuels firmly on the map of global land use change. Much of this recent land use change is occurring in developing countries where large agro-ecologically suitable tracts of land may be accessed at lower economic and opportunity cost. This is leading to the gradual penetration of commercial crops that provide suitable biofuel feedstocks (e.g., sugarcane, soybean, oil palm, jatropha) into rural communities and forested landscapes throughout many areas of the global South. Expansion of biofuel feedstock cultivation in developing countries is...

What are the social impacts of land use restrictions on local communities? Empirical evidence from Costa Rica AgEcon
Andam, Kwaw S.; Ferraro, Paul J.; Holland, Margaret B..
Global efforts to reduce deforestation rely heavily on protected areas and land use restrictions. The effect of these restrictions on local communities is currently the subject of heated debate among conservation and development experts. Measuring the social impacts of protected areas is difficult because the effects cannot be isolated from other factors, given the nonrandom placement of protection. We address this problem by applying a quasi-experimental approach to establish the counterfactual (“what would have been the socioeconomic outcome if a protected area had not been established?”). We use matching methods to measure the impacts of pre-1980 protected areas in Costa Rica on socioeconomic outcomes in 2000. In 2000, neighboring communities near...
