If you cannot take the heat, get out of the cerrado... Recovering the equilibrium amenity cost of nonmarginal climate change in Brazil
(Journal of Regional Science, 2007-02-01)
This paper presents an empirical technique for valuing large changes in nonmarketed local attributes (e.g., climate amenities) without data describing prices of locally traded commodities like housing. A model of endogenous ...
