This paper studies equilibrium search and learning in a dynamic shing gamethat is played by independent shermen and by members of an information sharingCooperative. Once collected, information about the location of productive sh-ing sites is an excludable public good. We show that independent...
Models of fishing behavior rarely incorporate the complexities of marine ecosystems,multiple-stock harvest technologies, and regulations present in real world marinefisheries. We introduce a structural model of a multi-species, weak-output-disposabilityharvest technology. A latent...
This paper estimates a structural model of multiple-species harvesting costs in the easternGulf of Mexico reef fish fishery. The calibrated model is used to predict fleet size, vessellevelharvesting activity and fleet-wide revenues and costs that are expected under a proposedindividual fishing...
This paper uses a semi-parametric empirical model to estimate the economic benefitsof adopting a property rights-based management program in the Gulf of Mexico grouperfishery. The analysis predicts that a rights-based fleet will be comprised of fewer, morecost efficient boats than under the...
We employ an open economy general equilibrium model to investigate the effects of governmentenergy policy, with an emphasis on corn-based ethanol, on the U.S. economy. The modelspecification incorporates world and domestic markets, assumes pollution costs from fuelconsumption, and allows...
