Abstract


The purpose of the present paper is to investigate the relationship between the Constitutional Principle of Intergenerational Equity and its economic application guided by a correctly established discounting rate. This theoretical approach corroborates John Rawls´ Just Saving Principle, which consists on considering each generation in a situation of virtual equality in order to correctly take into consideration peoples’ desires to preserve the natural resources for future generations.
