Abstract:

The research was undertaken in an effort to develop a theoretical framework of an empirically feasible procedure for assessing the broad economic, social, political and environmental impact of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Multiple Purpose Project. The report presents a methodology for projecting the efficient location of water related industry via regional linear programming. The spatial general equilibrium approach allows an analysis of the without condition, generally intractable in expost analysis. Methodology for analyzing other social, political and environmental impacts are advanced, with less empirical and comprehensive theoretical content. Yet the strategy of general equilibrium analysis is maintained. Author
