A Fair Go: Attitudes towards equity in natural resource management in WA

In this paper a methodology is proposed which allows one to estimate preferences over the distribution of policy outcomes within a community, using a random utility model and a CES utility function. Application to dryland salinity in WA using a convenience sample of students indicates a relatively low level of inequality aversion, but a strong 'reference' effect, linked to a potential policy outcome with strong equity levels.
