Title: Salmon and the economy: a handbook for understanding the issues in Washington and Oregon
Author: Niemi, Ernie; Whitelaw, Ed; Lindahl, David; Fifield, Anne; Gall, Michelle
Abstract: This handbook is one of the products from the Salmon Economics Project. Few people want to plod through all the evidence regarding the economic theory, facts, and implications of proposals to rebuild healthy salmon populations. The CWCH therefore asked the economists at ECONorthwest, an economic consulting firm with offices in Seattle, Portland, and Eugene, to provide a comprehensive summary of their views of ways in which rebuilding healthy salmon populations would affect the economies of Washington and Oregon. The following statements are an extremely brief summary of this handbook: rebuilding healthy salmon populations requires significant changes in Washington and Oregon; rebuilding healthy salmon populations will generate important economic benefits; the costs of rebuilding healthy salmon populations probably will not be as bad as many believe; and win-win opportunities are possible.
