Environmental Quality and Residuals Management: Report of a Research Program on Economic, Technological, and Institutional Aspects

By Allen V. Kneese; Blair T. Bower | Go to book overview

Preface

This brief preface has three purposes. The first is to indicate the range of applicability of the methodologies and analytical approaches discussed in this book. The second is to emphasize that this report is the joint product of many researchers. The third is to acknowledge the debt owed by the principal authors to others who helped us.

Since the program of research on which this report is based was first undertaken, efforts to cope with residuals problems have increased in many, if not most, of the countries of the world. The point of departure for the economic aspects of our research is market theory. But the fundamental problems of managing common property resources and of developing and applying implementation incentives to induce use of those resources consistent with socially determined goals are common to all political-economic systems and to all levels of economic development. Thus, the analytical approaches and quantitative models discussed here are as applicable to nonmarket as to market economies. Our experiences over the last decade have served to make that fact quite apparent (as appeared in the RFF Research Paper R-11 of Daniel J. Basta, James L. Lounsbury , and Blair T. Bower, entitled Analysis for Residuals-Environmental Quality Management, 1978). However, this is not to say that modeling and analysis should be highly sophisticated everywhere. On the contrary, in many cases in any economy, simple models are sufficient to provide the requisite information for decisions.

With respect to the second purpose, it will be apparent throughout that this book is the joint product of a considerable number of individuals, heralded and unheralded. It would not have been possible without the various researchers whose work comprises its raw material. Some of them have also prepared material specifically for inclusion in it, as we note at appropriate points.

In addition, we have two other categories of debts to acknowledge. First, this report would not have come to fruition without the unflagging
