Bioeconomy Economics and Policies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


This chapter discusses the link between bioeconomy economics and policies and economic theory. Starting from the measurement of well-being, the link to the importance of irreversibility is established and the importance is stressed of a detailed understanding of the current situation (state of nature). This includes the situation of the agricultural sector and provides the link to the farm household theory. In general, a number of policy options exists for improving the current state of nature and they need to be compared as part of a policy analysis to illustrate the trade-offs.
