Abstract or Summary
  • Indirect benefits have a long history in the literature of benefit-cost (B-C) analysis. A commonmeasurement tool for indirect benefits is the Leontief or Input Output Model (I-O), and this paper discussesindirect benefits as if they are identical to I-O analysis. The B-C literature disparages I-O for assessing theeconomic efficiency of a project but does admit its possible usefulness in connection with distributionalconsiderations, including inter-jurisdictional cost sharing. To illustrate, the paper draws on recent researchon Mid-Atlantic recreational fisheries. The nature of fisheries is such that I-O is an especially ill-suited toolfor efficiency analyses. However, in a concluding section, reference is made to a way in which I-O could beuseful. It appears that this application may be better suited for the commercial fisheries than for recreationalfisheries.
