Common Property, Private Property And Regulation The Case Of Dryland Salinity

Author

  • Quiggin, John C.

Abstract

The term 'common property' has frequently been misapplied to situations where no property rights exist. Common property rights have provided a workable alternative to private property in many historical situations. Common property concepts and institutions can also play a major role in analysing and responding to current environmental problems. In this paper, the problem of dryland salinity is examined and solutions based on common property, private property and regulation are compared.
