Funding for the protection of the environment has traditionally come from general tax revenues. Fish and wildlife habitat enhancement and endangered species protection are prominent examples of this phenomenon. In the past few years, however, several aspects of this situation have changed. First,...
Lewbel (1989) offered a demand model which nested both the indirect translog (ITL) of Christensen, Jorgensen, and Lau (1977) and almost ideal demand system (AIDS) of Deaton and Muellbauer (1980a, 1980b). It has the advantage, then of allowing the applied demand analyst to test the restrictions...
The responses of a random sample of consumers to the use of bovine somatotrophin (BST) in milk production were elicited using a stated preference methodology. A multinomial logit model of consumer choice was developed and tested to analyse consumers' choices of milk with varying characteristics...
The notion that a potato is an inferior good dates back to the mid-nineteenth century when British economist Robert Giffen (and later Paul Samuelson) asserted that potato constituted a Giffen good in historic Ireland (McDonough and Eisenhauer). Potato has become a leading practical example of an...
For decades now, there have been grave warnings about the alarming rates of tree and shrub destruction in the tropics. These warnings stressed the disastrous consequences of deforestation and predicted imminent fuelwood deficits across the African continent. However, the reality has been somewhat...
Economic Analysis of Vegetative Buffer Zone Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs) for a Mixed Farm Operation in the Lower Little Bow WatershedDownload
Vegetative buffers, if established around riparian areas, represent a type of beneficial management practice (BMP) that provide ecological goods and services in the form of improved water quality, improve wildlife/waterfowl habitat, etc. Establishing these buffers result in reduced area for...
The demand for meat in Canada is examined in a manner similar to previous work by Chen and Veeman, Moschini and Meilke, and Reynolds and Goddard. The current effort differs from previous studies in two important ways. First, beef demand is disaggregated into ground beef and table cut beef. This...
The psychology, the marketing consumer behavior and, to a much smaller extent, the economics literature have long reported evidence that decision makers utilize different decision strategies depending upon many factors (person-specific, task-specific, etc.). Such observations have generally...
This paper derives a set of linear and nonlinear restrictions to make a n-goods linear almost ideal demand system (AIDS) symmetric when all prices are allowed to vary. When prices are scaled by their means, the conventional restricitons are sufficient to make the linear AIDS symmetric at mean....
Reframing Agricultural Extension Education Services in Industrially Developed Countries: A Canadian PerspectiveDownload
Some of the material discussed in this paper was initially presented to a group of professionals in the Cooperative Extension Unit of the American Association of Adult and Continuing Education. In keeping with the theme of the session 'Extension's Odyssey to the Future' it became necessary to...
