Title: Economic analysis in support of broad scale land management strategies.

Author: Haynes, Richard.;

Date: 2003

Source: Forest Policy and Economics. 5: 361-371

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The US has a century of experience with the development of forest policies that have benefited from or been influenced by economic research activities in the forest sector. At the same time, increasing rigor in policy debates stimulated economics research. During the past four decades economic research has evolved to include increased understanding of consumer demands, producer behavior, landowner behavior and timber resource conditions. Bioeconomic models have evolved that combine economic and resource models; these have been used in the US to provide the basis for forecasting future resource and market trends and to shape public perceptions. Economics research has also contributed frameworks for policy analysis using approaches like scenario planning to help decisionmakers gauge uncertainty.

Keywords: Forest policy history, forest sector modeling, policy analysis, supply, demand
