Economic theory of depletable resources: an introduction



Economic theory of depletable resources: an introduction



Handbook of natural resource and energy economics: Volume 3: 759-854



A two-way classification of natural resources can be made, based on (i) physical properties of the resource, and (ii) the time scale of the relevant adjustment processes. Based on the time scale of the relevant adjustment processes, resources can also be classified as expendable, renewable, or depletable. This paper provides an introduction to the economic theory of depletable resources such as endangered species, top soil and wilderness.
