A Martingale Characterization of the Price of a Nonrenewable Resource with Decisions Involving Uncertainty, Journal of Economic Theory

Abstract

We consider a general model of nonrenewable resource consumption and exploration decisions under uncertainty. The unceratinty may be about the time of exhaustion, new stock discovery or a producible substitute availability. We provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the resource price to rise at rate equal to, greater than or less than the discount rate.
