'Paulo Nunes provides a detailed and innovative book outlining a contingent valuation (CV) study investigating warm glow This is a very detailed account of a state-of-the-art application of the CV method. If you are embarking on your first CV study as a PhD student or otherwise, then this excellent book may be invaluable.' - Neil Powe, Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design 'Paulo Nunes provides an innovative and insightful study that puts forward a method for detecting and correcting warmglow effects in contingent valuation. While readers are being taken on this hunt for warmglow, they are treated to a thorough explanation of how a CVM instrument is designed, refined, implemented and statistically tested for robustness using parametric and non-parametric approaches. The survey instrument provided in the appendix is an added bonus for those wanting to implement his warmglow detection and correction method. It is simply "unbelievable" how much information is packed into this volume. It is a good read and contains sections that will be useful for those designing their first CVM survey, as well as veterans interested in trying out the author's method for detecting and correcting warmglow.' - John B. Loomis, Colorado State University, US The contingent valuation technique for measuring the economic value of environmental goods and services has becoming increasingly popular in recent years and has many advantages over other revealed or stated preference methods. It has been criticised, however, for being inconsistent with economic theory by reflecting altruistic motives and moral obligations. This book examines the role of the 'warmglow' effect (the pleasure derived from giving to good causes or being concerned about the environment) in contingent valuation studies and examines whether warmglow is an underlying force in CV responses.
