[BBL] Natural Capital: from Social to Circular Accounting | Tuesday, April 3 | 12:30-2:00 PM | MC 9-500


Overview:

The BBL will discuss the problem of social accounting of natural resources, focusing on natural capital and the “circularity” of the economic process. By re-examining the welfare economic foundations of social accounting through the lenses of neoclassical growth and the Leontiev-Stone Sam accounts, a possible integration of these two systems will be discussed at both the macroeconomic and sector levels. A method will be presented to measure stocks and flows for capital accounting and to estimate appropriate shadow prices for the different components of investment in natural capital, with and without a sector of “circular” capital recovery activities. An empirical application to Kenya and social accounting for water will also be presented.

Chair:

Dan Biller (Sector Manager, MIGEC)

Discussants:

Shanta Devarajan (Senior Director for Development Economics)

Raffaello Cervigni (Lead Environmental Economist)

Glenn-Marie Lange (Senior Environmental Economist)
