Willingness to Pay for Curbside Recycling With Detection and Mitigation of Hypothetical Bias
American Journal of Agriculture Economics
In this article, we estimate willingness to pay for curbside recycling. Using a unique data set, we also test for and detect significant hypothetical bias using stated- and revealed-preference data. A short-scripted “cheap-talk” statement is used to mitigate the bias and provide more efficient estimates of the welfare impacts of curbside recycling programs.
