Abstract:This paper proposes a theoretically complete direct social cost-accounting framework for use in considering wilderness designation proposals. It is an alternative to the incomplete analysis Congress has used in the past. When the method was applied oh four wildernesses in Vermont and New Hampshire, it showed that costs for fiscal year 1977 were substantially higher than the estimates Congress had before designation in 1975.
