Water provides benefits as a commodity for agriculture, industry, and households, and as a public good such as fisheries habitat, water quality and recreational use. To aid in cost-benefit analysis under conditions where market determined price signals are usually unavailable, economists have developed a range of alternative valuation methods for measuring economic benefits.
This volume provides the most comprehensive exposition to-date of the application of economic valuation methods to proposed water resources investments and policies. It provides a conceptual framework for valuation of both commodity and public good uses of water, addressing non-market valuation techniques appropriate to measuring public benefits - including water quality improvement, recreation, and fish habitat enhancement. The book describes the various measurement methods, illustrates how they are applied in practice, and discusses their strengths, limitations, and appropriate roles.
In this second edition, all chapters have been thoroughly updated, and in particular the coverage of water markets and valuation of ecosystem services from water has been expanded. Robert Young, author of the 2005 edition, has been joined for this new edition by John Loomis, who brings additional expertise on ecosystem services and the environmental economics of water for recreational and other public good uses of water.
Table of Contents Introduction The World Owes Me a Living Money and Happiness The Accumulation of Material Possessions Material Riches - A Story of Some Ray - Bans Job Satisfaction Obsession with Money Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Oscar Wilde once said - "A cynic is that person who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing." This was said more than 100 years ago, and I was wondering about how man suddenly decided that his idea of happiness was tied up with the thought of money and why he has become so materialistic. This book is being written because I have noticed that more and more acquaintances and friends of mine instinctively look at an item in somebody else's house, and start pricing it mentally. Sometimes they even blurt out the price, as if they cannot help it. And the tone is either very envious, or rather patronizing. So this book is going to tell you all about how you as a human being could start learning about the value of money and its place in the scheme of things. You may also teach your children this particular attitude, and this is going to be explained in further volumes. So that your child does not grow up thinking that the level of his contentment, satisfaction, and happiness as he grows up to be an adult is directly linked with the amount of money in his bank balance, or amounts accessible to him. In fact, you could learn the price of money and the value people put on it, right here.
