Who Owns the Environment?


Peter J. Hill and Roger E. Meiners, Editors

Environmental issues are fundamentally property rights issues. This volume provides an overview of property rights and the environment and extends the research frontier on numerous ownership issues. From a study of community efforts to solve the problem of the commons to lessons from experimental economics, the authors discuss a wide range of theoretical and empirical issues. Common law rules, federal land privatization, the Endangered Species Act, and the role of a constitution in protecting private property are considered.
