Example text

It should be mentioned that the inequality can also be produced by an indirect utility function that is strictly concave in z and income. This result is derived in the appendix at the end of the paper. In any case, CVB > E(CV) is the final hypothesis to be tested. EMPIRICAL RESULTS In this section, we will present a test of the hypotheses generated in Section 3. However, before turning to this test, another consistency test of the empirical material is reported. In principle, the classification of values discussed in Section 2 can be used to design simple consistency tests of willingness to pay measures.

Is negative definite. ) . x' < 0 implying that E(CV) < CVB. See Turnovsky (1976) for a slight extension of this result. Replacing CVi in ( A . l ) by AP, it is straightforward to show that the considered indirect utility function produces AP < CVB. Finally, if the indirect utility function is strictly convex in z, y, then D 2V ( . 2) implying that CVB < E(CV) and CVB < AP. C. , 1984.

E. a larger z, m,irrespective of whether he himself has any narrow advantage from this. In general, this kind of an existence value is motivated by altruistic behaviour. Boyle and Bishop (1985, p. 13), following Bishop and Heberlein (1984), suggest the following five altruistic motives for existence values. (i) "Bequest motives.
