There is an abundance of literature examining the role of water in terms of its existence in sufficient quantities so that these will support, in a sustainable way, livelihood, well-being, social and economic development, and in addition prevent water pollution and disasters while preserving ecosystems as per the 2017 UN definition of the Water Security definition.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present articles going a step further, toward the exposition and analysis of the quantitative/qualitative role water plays in an economy under scarcity and sustainability constraints. These constraints may alter the nature of the production function at country/region level by the inclusion of extra variables. A putative hierarchy of needs may alter supply/demand curves and Slutsky/Hicks decompositions according to the development level of the country/region considered. Further, they will extend to the Leontief matrix of economy, acting as an enveloping frame for any model used to describe the resulting economy. Particular weight will be added to optimality conditions regarding various economic variables.
Cost effects and production level/restrictive choices for goods transmitted to the economy are of importance, and consumer choices will be affected using classical or novel methods, e.g., Thaler’s recent theory.
