Buy Article:

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Abstract:

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
