Highlights Ecosystem services make up 60% of ordinary total products in Andalusian HOWs. The GVA of National accounting is 37% that of the Agroforestry Accounting System. Andalusian holm oak environmental asset is 94% of opening total capital. Andalusian holm oak environmental income is 88% of total income. The amenity ecosystem service makes up 46% of total ES in Andalusian HOWs. The ecosystem service of water supply makes up 20% of total ES in Andalusian HOWs.

Abstract The brief description of the sequence of accounts for the products in the SNA and SEEA-EEA guidelines compared...

Highlights The GVA of the Agroforestry Accounting System (AAS) is 1.8 times that of the SNA. The amenity ecosystem services accounts for 34% of the total one for the dehesa. The final economic water accounts for 43% of the environmental income of the dehesa. The total ecosystem services in the rSEEA-EEA overvalues by 20% that of the sAAS. The ecosystem service in the AAS is 2.5 times that of the System of National Accounts.

Abstract Corporations and governments face the challenge of dealing with new demands from social actors to make visible their individual economic activity...

Highlights Cork oak woodland farmers’ extended accounts make up 50% of environmental asset. Cork oak woodland ecosystem services contribute to 76% of final product consumed. Cork oak woodland environmental income represents 3% of environmental asset. Cork oak woodland standard ecosystem services are 30% of extended accounts. Cork oak woodland standard accounts’ gross value added is 37% of extended accounts.

Abstract This study’s objective is to estimate and compare spatially explicit measures of ecosystem services and total environmental incomes for individual activities which...

Highlights Private amenity is the largest ecosystem service in mixed holm oak open woodlands. Landscape ecosystem service (ES) accounts for 29% of sAAS ordinary final product. Farmer and government sAAS ecosystem services present similar values. Changes in environmental assets are positive for all activities except the amenity asset. Ecosystem services of activities are lower than environmental incomes, except in the case of amenity.

Abstract The scientific debate on how to make visible the linkages between the standard System of National Accounts (SNA) and its ongoing satellite...

Highlights Extended accounts dehesas´ environmental asset is 84% of total opening capital. Farmer extended accounts dehesas´ share the 61% of total environmental asset. Extended accounts dehesas´ ecosystem services are 45% of final product consumed. Standard accounts’ ecosystem services are 34% of extended accounts’.


The ultimate goal of scholars and governmental institutions is to demonstrate nature in standard statistics, leading government agendas to the development of environmental-economic accounts which uncover hidden actual ecosystem services embedded in...

We analyze the formation of public good agreements under the weakest-link technology. Whereas policy coordination is not necessary for symmetric players, it matters for asymmetric players; however, this fails in the absence of transfers. By contrast, with a transfer scheme, asymmetry may be an asset for cooperation. We characterize various types and degrees of asymmetry and relate them to the stability of self-enforcing agreements. Asymmetric distributions of autarky public good provision levels (also representing asymmetric interests in cooperation) that are positively skewed tend to be...

This paper contributes to the ongoing discussion about the impact of robotization on welfare democracies. It advances conjectures on possible future scenarios following the examination of past trajectories. The context of analysis is that corresponding to welfare capitalism in the Western hemisphere. An historical examination of the three Ages of Welfare (Golden, 1945-75; Silver, 1976, 2017; and Bronze, 2008--?) provides the historical bases with the purpose of pondering prospective scenarios. Arguably, the structural economic overturn brought about by robotization and related technologies...

This paper provides a theoretical rationale for private investment in basic research. It explains the decision by some firms to hire scientists who have an intrinsic motivation to pursue academic research and allow them to do so while they also dedicate time to the firm’s applied agenda. We show that this decision maximizes firms’ profits in a context where basic and applied research activities are not strong substitutes and the opportunity cost, associated with deterring scientists from remaining in academia, is sufficiently low. Allowing scientists to pursue an academic agenda...

National accounting either ignores or fails to give due values to a country´s ecosystem services, products, total income and environmental asset variations. To overcome these shortcomings, we develop a spatially-explicit extended ecosystem accounting framework, which we test in the Mediterranean forests of Andalusia (Spain). This framework goes beyond the production boundary of standard national accounting by considering four private activities (forestry, hunting, residential and private amenity) and six public activities (mushroom, carbon, water, recreation, landscape and threatened...

La selvicultura aplicada en forma de aclareo de las encinas y los alcornoques para favorecer la productividad de los pastos ha dado forma a los paisajes arbolados abiertos que reciben el nombre de formaciones adehesadas en España y montados en Portugal. Los pastos siguen siendo una fuente principal de alimentación del ganado en los ecosistemas silvo-pastorales del sur y el oeste de la península Ibérica. Adicionalmente las especies cinegéticas consumen una parte sustancial de los pastos de las dehesas ibéricas. Las producciones de pastos (bellota, hierba y ramón), leña y corcho se han...
