dc.description.abstractThis paper analyzes nature protection by a social planner under different ?utilitarian? socialwelfare functions. For that purpose we construct an integrated model of the economy and theecosystem with explicit consideration of nonhuman species and with competition betweenhuman and nonhuman species for land and prey biomass. We characterize and compare theefficient allocations when social welfare is anthropocentric (only consumers have positivewelfare weights), and when social welfare is nonanthropocentric (all species have positivewelfare weights). Not surprisingly, biocentric social welfare calls for suspending all economicactivities. It is more important, however, that both anthropocentrism and nonanthropocentrismmake the case for nature protection through different channels. Our analysis suggests that onemay dispense with the concept of nonanthropocentric social welfare provided that in theanthropocentric framework the consumers? intrinsic valuation of nature is properly accountedfor.en_US
