Show Summary Details


This chapter reviews second-generation laws that protect the nonuse health benefits that humans experience when public environmental goods are not employed as a pollution sink; preserve natural objects from extractive developmental use to maximize recreational and existence value; seek to carry out regulatory reforms guided by a desire for economic efficiency and market-based approaches to environmental quality; and incorporate into decision making a system that would account for the economic services provided for humans when ecosystems are left alone.

Keywords: nonuse health benefits; recreational value; existence value; pollution
