Example text

Garrett Hardin's 1968 article, "The Tragedy of the Commons," focused widespread attention on the problem of environmental degradation in the absence of rules governing use (Hardin 1968). For a number of years the general interpretation of Hardin's argument was that collectively owned property was the culprit and that private property was necessary to sustain environmental resources. However, a rapidly expanding body of scientific evidence indicates that sustaining environmental resources is not dependent on a particular structure of property regime, but rather on a well-specified property rights regime and a congruency of that regime with its ecological and social context.

Under a regime of open access, claims to resources are realized at the point of capture, and owners have no specified duty to maintain the resource or constrain use (Black 1968; Ciriacy-Wantrup and Bishop 1975; Berkes 1989; Bromley 1989; Stevenson 1991). Property rights regimes must perform certain functions of limiting use, coordinating users, and responding to changing environmental conditions. These activities involve the transaction costs of coordination, information gathering, monitoring, and enforcement (Eggertsson 1990; Hanna 1994).
