If a special condition referred to as “weak complementarity”—which is discussed next—is satisﬁed, this arrangement is useful and forms the basis for the travel cost method presented in Chap. 6. 2 39 Weak Complementarity Suppose the compensated demand for Market Good 1 (x1) depends on the level of q1 in a marginally positive way; that is, the demand curve shifts out as q1 increases.
The second vector in both the market and nonmarket goods partitions are those attributes selected through the housing purchase. The total price of the house is a function of these attributes, ph ðX2 ; Q2 Þ. The maximization problem follows: max U ðX1 ; X2 ; Q1 ; Q2 Þ X;Q2 s:t p1 Á X1 þ ph ðX2 ; Q2 Þ y; Q1 ¼ Q01 : ð2:24Þ The important feature is that the consumer chooses the levels of Q2 through the house purchase up to the point where the marginal beneﬁt equals marginal cost. , prices: @U @qj ¼ @U @xj @U @qj ¼ @U @xj @ph @qj @ph @xj @ph @qj pi qj 2 Q 2 ; xj 2 X 2 ð2:25Þ qj 2 Q 2 ; xj 2 X 2 : As in the case for market goods, the combined marginal substitution relationships conceptually yield a marginal substitution curve, referred to as the bid function for the individual.
3. The resources (both time and money) needed to do the valuation can also differ, depending on the method chosen. This implies that some methods might be more feasible or appropriate (depending on information needs) in some contexts than others. For example, major regulations might warrant the signiﬁcant expenditures involved in doing an original valuation-related survey, while minor regulations or less signiﬁcant decisions might be able to rely on less resource-intensive beneﬁt transfers. 4. Finally, in some contexts, methods might differ in terms of their perceived acceptability as a reliable means of estimating values.
