Cover for An intergenerational perspective on effects of environmental changes: discounting the future's viewpoint.

In economic appraisal, the level of significance given to future environmental changes depends on the discounting procedure. The most common justification for discounting is that early cash revenues can grow at compound interest: thus compensation for distant-future environmental costs can be...
