Abstract

Surveys some past analyses of resource scarcity developing their intellectual roots and detailing methods used. With this background, together with some perspective on the current empirical analyses of the extent to which the U.S. has experienced increased scarcity of natural resources, the theory underlying the measurement of scarcity indexes and the mechanisms through which natural resource constraints might be relaxed are examined.-K.Turner
