Cost Allocation in Efficient Multiple-Use Management: A Comment
Abstract:There is no need to allocate costs to outputs in order to decide upon the marginality of land for particular uses. Optimal land allocations may be based on the outputs and total costs of alternative strategies for each land unit. If the best allocation excludes an output, then that use is sub-marginal. Only this classification has economic meaning. Such classification is not permanent, but will depend on the relative values of outputs.
