Study of the Economic Effects of Changes in Air Quality
The report presents the results of a three year study of the economic effects of changes in air quality. The study specified a conceptual model within which the benefits of controlling air pollution can be evaluated, as well as new testable hypotheses concerning the effects of air pollution on consumer activity. The implementation of the beenfit-cost methodology consistent with the conceptual model and its associated hypotheses focused on the estimation of the various benefits and costs of controlling smoke produced by open burning of grass seed fields in the Willamette Valley. Eight appendices are included which present theoretical and empirical materials, new, generally unappreciated theoretical results and empirical investigations which tested important hypotheses.
