Few national economic policies have been mired in policy gridlock as deeply and for as long a period of time as grazing fees and other issues with respect to the use of public lands. The purpose of this paer is to provide an economic framework for analyzing grazing fees and other public land disputes that is sufficiently broad to integrate the interests of both resource users (such as ranching and mining interests) and environmentalists. To this end, the emphasis is more on the broader policy issues of property rights and the political economy than on the narrower one of grazing fees.
