This paper investigates impacts of the creation of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), in both economic and biological perspectives. The economic indicator is defined as the sum of discounted benefits derived from exploitation of the resource in the fishery sector, assumed to be optimally managed. The biological indicator is taken as the stock density of the(More)
The current situation of the monetary valuation of air pollution mortality is reviewed, with particular attention to the valuation of a gain in life expectancy (LE) achievable by a reduction of ambient pollution. This paper presents exploratory research centered around the application in France of a contingent valuation (CV) questionnaire developed by(More)

In this paper, we propose a behavioural approach to determine the extent to which the consumer/citizen distinction a ects interpretations of monetary values. We perform a eld experiment dealing with air pollution, where some (randomly selected) subjects are given the opportunity to behave politically by signing a petition for environmental protection prior(More)
In the Gordon-Schaefer model (G-S model), widely used to design sheries management policy, only resource stock dynamic is considered and carrying capacity is constant. We propose an extension to the G-S model that incorporates the dynamics of carrying capacity as an indicator of dynamics of the marine habitats. The study yields two main ndings. First, we(More)
We explore the influence of a neutral cheap talk script in three typical scenarios used in the CV literature devoted to the valuation of air pollution effects. We show that cheap talk has a differentiated effect depending on the scenario implemented. It decreases protest responses with no effect on WTP values in the scenario based on a new drug. When a move(More)
