Abstract:The major economic theories of natural resource extraction are reviewed critically. The current classical theories are shown to be in error. Appropriate classical and neoclassical models of resource extraction are developed and applied using Illinois coal mining data. The models are tested to evaluate their performance in predicting the location of mining activity within Illinois.
