Valuing mineral stocks and depletion in green national income accounts
DAVIS, GRAHAM A.
MOORE, DAVID J.
This paper investigates the theory and practice of adjusting national income and product accounts for the stock and depletion of mineral assets. These green income adjustments can have a significant impact on the accounts of mineral-based developing economies and the macroeconomic policies that might be derived from these accounts. We propose that the popular methods used to adjust the accounts for the impacts of mineral assets and depletion are upwardly biased, and we present alternative stock valuation and depletion formulas that are empirically supported variants of the formulas currently in use.
