    Description

    A dynamic simulation model has been adapted for use in Alaska. It provides a flexible tool for examining the economic consequences of alternative forest resource management policies. The model could be adapted for use elsewhere if an interindustry transaction table is available or can be developed. To demonstrate the model's usefulness, the contribution of the pulp and paper and tourism industries to Alaska's economy is analyzed. A $105 million increase in final demand for goods and services provided by the tourism industry would compensate for the loss of employment and earnings resulting from the closure of Alaska's two pulpmills. Most of the loss would be confined to higher paying technical jobs in two remote locations; the increase in jobs would involve lower paying jobs located throughout the State.
