Abstract or Summary
  • If informed and rational judgments are to be made concerning proposed large scale interbasin water diversions, it is imperative that competent positive analysis be undertaken by scientists of relevant disciplines. It is the primary purpose of this thesis to pull together into a single interrelated package, the economic theory needed to establish a framework for analyzing the economic efficiency and distributive impacts of interbasin water transfers. Accordingly, a model is developed such that efficiency implications of resource transfer schemes can be ascertained; the components of the model are identified so that direct regional income redistributive effects might be determined. The model is then extended to consider value in transit, intrafirm production interdependencies, interfirm production interdependencies, and indirect benefits and costs. Finally, a method is demonstrated for estimating one component of the efficiency model. The marginal value productivity of water in irrigated agriculture is estimated from secondary data sources using least-squares regression analysis.
