The Dynamics Of Deforestation And Economic Growth In The Brazilian Amazon

THE DYNAMICS OF DEFORESTATION AND ECONOMIC GROWTH IN THE BRAZILIAN AMAZON

Dynamics

ABSTRACT

This presents an economic perspective of deforestation in the Brazilan Amazon. The authors make use of an extensive collection of economic and ecological data spanning the whole of the Brazilian Amazon from 1970 to 1996 to examine the extent to which land clearing promotes economic activity and growth. They consider policies such as road building and subsidized credit to analyze their ecological and economic impact and examine whether the economic benefits of land clearing surpass the ecological costs and analyse the viability of extractivsm as an alternative to deforestation.A book on the Brazilian Amazon, the world’s largest tropical forest, always demands one’s attention and this volume is an especially worthy addition to the literature. The authors have drawn on all available data sources to assess the benefits and costs of land-use change in the region. Moreover, key findings are presented without resort to technical jargon, which guarantees that the book’s impacts will be far-reaching.’ Douglas Southgate, Ohio State University
