On the Extinction of Species in Jointly Determined Stochastic Systems
Posted: 28 Jul 2000
The economics literature on extinction has not paid much attention to the task of constructing metrics of species extinction. Further, this literature has not analyzed the issue of species extinction in stochastic ecological-economic systems that are jointly determined. As such, the goal of this paper is to use the theory of stochastic processes to construct a metric of species extinction in jointly determined ecological-economic systems.
