Lindy H. Ingham
Abstract:This article discusses the treatment of natural resources and environmental issues in the national accounts, and considers the criticisms of the existing treatment put forward by environmental economists and others. Some alternative approaches which have been proposed are examined. Possible future developments in accounting for environmental factors in the national accounts are also outlined. Where relevant, both a historical perspective and the Australian experience of accounting for natural resources and the environment have been included.
Keywords:Natural resource and environmental accounting; national accounts; gross domestic product; sustainable income.
