Abstract:

A refutable hypothesis is developed theoretically that joint cost allocation schemes are not likely to lead to correct output level decisions. This hypothesis is supported in a test case experiment involving a managed forest in Alabama. Seven allocation schemes are tested: Separable Cost-Remaining Benefits, Nucleolus, Proportional Nucleolus, Weak Nucleolus, Benefit-Included Nucleolus, Shapley Value, and a Generalized Shapley Value. None of these schemes indicate, in the test case, correct timber output levels based on timber benefits and allocated costs alone. For. Sci. 33(4):1035-1046.
