De quelques spécificités de la valorisation des ressources naturelles semi-renouvelables


  • Jean-Pierre Amigues

  • Michel Moreaux


We study the optimal valuation of semi-renewable resources, like groundwater, under different assumptions as to the evolution of the population. When the population is either constant or decreasing, valuations of flow and stock resources are identical. With an increasing population however, an optimal consumption policy may involve refraining from consuming the flow in order to restock for future consumption. In this case, the marginal valuation of the resource as a flow or as a stock may differ at times.
