Buy Article:

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


Goal programming and linear programming solutions are compared with respect to their proximity to the welfare optimum. The conditions under which L.P. yields Pareto optima are discussed; these conditions generally do not hold in the wildland political economy. In economies with market imperfections, neither G.P. nor L.P. categorically lead to Pareto optimal allocations. Forest Sci. 27:454-459.

Keywords: Forest economics; applied welfare theory
