Comprehensive NNP, Social Welfare, and the Rate of Return

Chuan-Zhong Li () and Karl-Gustaf Löfgren ()

Abstract: We show that growth in NNP measured in constant prices indicates welfare improvement, provided that an observable rate of return measure is positive. This is an

alternative welfare interpretation of growth in comprehensive NNP compared with

that of Asheim and Weitzman (2001, this journal) which is based on a Divisia con-

sumer price index.
