ECONOMIC POLICIES, ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS, AND LAND USE

There is a wide gap between economic theory and efficient land use policy with regard to environmental problem should be identified as part of the land use planning process. Research needs to be done on the behavioral interdependance of public and private sectors involved in the planning, on what efficiency criteria should be applied to evaluate alternate types of control agencies, and on a taxonomic identification of other feasible types of land use controls. Planning land resources to be environmenyally compatible with humans and natural ecology will be worth the cost in the long run.
