Wood is the primary source of household energy for many African countries. Fuelwood is used for cooking meals, heating homes (as the season requires), making charcoal, etc. Much of the existing literature concerning fuelwood is broad in scope and does not provide insights into the microeconomic...
In Search of Forest Resource Values of Aboriginal Peoples: The Applicability of Non-Market Valuation TechniquesDownload
The purpose of this paper is to present an interdisciplinary model and a process for considering the applicability of non-market valuation techniques to Aboriginal Peoples. These techniques are widely used in non-Aboriginal contexts as methods of providing information about preferences over...
A stated preference model and a revealed preference model for recreational site choice are examined and compared. Both models are based on random utility theory and the data are obtained from the same individuals. The stated preference model is based on the respondent's choice from hypothetical...
In 1989 the Canadian forest industry shipped nearly $50 billion of forest products, generated over $3.5 billion in government revenues, and accounted for $19.5 billion of Canada's trade surplus (Forestry Canada, 1991). The forest provides the products which are used to generate trade surpluses...
Contingent valuation (CV) has been employed by economists for approximately 30 years to value changes in natural resources and environments. Estimating the value of resource improvements or damages is analogous to the problem in marketing research of estimating the demand for new products or...
The Effect of Choice Environment and Task Demands on Consumer Behavior: Discriminating Between Contribution and ConfusionDownload
Choices, whether they are made in actual markets (revealed preferences or RP) or in surveys (stated preference of SP), provide information about the preferences of individuals. These choices also contain what researchers interpret as \"noise\" or unexplained variation; a variety of techniques...
Non-market Valuation Biases Due to Aboriginal Cultural Characteristics in Northern Saskatchewan: The Values Structures ComponentDownload
Current non-market valuation techniques have been developed based on assumptions about values held within the Eurocentred culture. Contentions between cultures over natural resources are hypothesized to occur because of differences in held values resulting in different values being assigned to...
The short-run dynamic impacts of macroeconomic variables on the Canadian pulp industry and the interactions among pulp sector variables are investigated using the vector autoregression (VAR) approach. In contrast to the findings of earlier studies, our results show that an increase in the value...
Maintaining the abundance of wildlife and the preservation of endangered species are serious concerns to the people of Saskatchewan. In the 1991 survey \"Importance of Wildlife to Canadians\" over 80% of Saskatchewan respondents stated that these two issues are important. This same survey also...
Interest in modeling the relationship between the macroeconomy and the agricultural economy has risen steadily since Schuh's 1974 article which illustrated the potential effects of macroeconomic policy shocks on the agricultural sector. A variety of authors has examined the effects of exchange...
