Economic theory assumes that willingness to pay (WTP) increases with the quantity of the consumed good. This implies that there should be a scope effect in contingent valuation studies. However, in previous issues of Ecological Economics, several authors criticized the contingent valuation (CV) method for the absence of such effect or its inadequac...

This paper analyzes the demand for recreation in Swiss forests using the individual travel cost method. We apply a two-steps approach, i.e., a hurdle zero-truncated negative binomial model, that allows accounting for a large number of non-visitors caused by the off-site phone survey and over-dispersion. Given the national scale of the survey, we gr...

Les auteurs mènent une évaluation contingente sur un échantillon représentatif de la population pour estimer la disponibilité à payer (DAP) pour un programme de création de nouvelles réserves forestières en Suisse. Le scénario prévoit des restrictions d’accès aux zones forestières en question, raison pour laquelle l’analyse porte essentiellement su...

Background: The 2009 A/H1N1 influenza pandemic generated additional data and triggered new studies that opened debate over the optimal strategy for handling a pandemic. The lessons-learned documents from the World Health Organization show the need for a cost estimation of the pandemic response during the risk-assessment phase. Several years after...

Working Paper
Full-text available
In this paper, we test for scope effects in Contingent Valuation applying different distributional assumptions for WTP, a non-parametric estimation and an estimation based on an open-ended format. Mean WTP is sensitive to the distributional assumption, but so is the scope effect. The nonparametric model, without conditions on the distribution, is t...

The objective of this review study is to improve the proficiency of cost calculation and forecasting in pandemic risk management. The 2009 A/H1N1 influenza pandemic has generated additional data and triggered new studies that open debate over the optimal strategy for handling a pandemic. A point of improvement for the risk analysis of such crises t...

In this paper, we assess the economic efficiency of Swiss water utilities. To reach this aim, we accessed a new and unexploited database, which counts 330 water utilities, representing about 55% of the drinking water distributed in Switzerland. The database spans over six years (2000-2005) and offers information on the type of the water production...

In a global environment, many authors affirm that integrated management tools (ERP) are indispensable to the SME. What is the situation of the Swiss SME in relation to the adoption of ERP and how do they react ? What is the profile of the Swiss SME that utilizes an ERP ? Our research is empirical. The statistical analysis of the answers from approx...

Article
This paper examines how the marginal CO2 abatement costs vary throughout stages of economic development, and how these variations may be related to the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) hypothesis. By assuming the existence of a technological link between production of desirable outputs and pollution, shadow prices of carbon emissions are estimated...

They represent and are a measure of the "envi-ronmental fraction" that is embodied in economic products but which is not captured by commercial markets. In contrast, externalities stand for and dimension the "environmental consequences" of economic production and con-sumption tha...
