By Andrea Baranzini, José Ramirez, Caroline Schaerer, Philippe Thalmann

Cities are turning out to be around the world and their sprawl is more and more challenged for its strain on open areas and environmental caliber. fiscal arguments can assist to choose in regards to the trade-off among retaining environmental caliber and constructing housing and enterprise surfaces, supplied some great benefits of environmental caliber are appropriately quantified. To this finish, this ebook makes a speciality of the use and development of the "hedonic approach", an fiscal valuation procedure that analyses and quantifies the resources of lease and estate rate differentials. ranging from theoretical foundations, the hedonic technique is utilized to the valuation of usual land use protection and noise abatement measures, in addition to to residential segregation and discrimination, extending the research to the function of the dealers' and ' identification on housing marketplace costs and to the problem of environmental justice.

4 to recover marginal willingness to pay for the environmental attribute. Although the vast majority of hedonic housing applications implicitly or explicitly assume housing supply is fixed, supply is easily modeled in the perfectly competitive framework considered by Rosen. 5) where H is the number of housing units of type Z that the firm produces and C(•) is a well-behaved cost function. Recall, the assumption is that firms face an exogenous price function P(z). O. Taylor chooses to produce. 6) which indicates that the firm’s optimal choice of zi must satisfy the condition that the marginal price of zi is equated to the marginal cost of producing zi per house.
