Who Owns the Environment? Lessons from the Legacy of Elinor Ostrom

Terry Anderson John and Jean De Nault Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution William A. Dunn Distinguished Senior Fellow, PERC We typically treat the environment as a commons to be managed by regulations from Washington. As Elinor Ostrom taught us, however, “managing the commons” may be more effective at the local level. This lecture will provide examples of how and why property rights and markets can improve environmental stewardship.
