A well-intentioned, but science-deficient framework for using property rights and tradeable pollution rights to combat environmental degradation. The authors treat environmental problems as the result of the irresponsible actions of individuals, rather than the result of irresponsible industry. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

About the Author:

Rose Anne Devlin, Associate Professor of Economics and R. Quentin Grafton, Professor of Economics, Crawford School, Australian National University

Review:

Devlin and Grafton provide a very clear and lively treatment of the economic way of thinking about environmental issues. After presenting the basic principles, they take the reader through lots of important and intriguing applications including the excessive exploitation of the world's fisheries, biodiversity, deforestation, and the depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer. They show how we can create and enforce property rights so as to protect and improve the environment. The reader sees how economics can help both to understand and to address our environmental challenges. -- Wallace E. Oates, University of Maryland

Lack of property rights is one of the most fundamental causes of environmental degradation and inadequate resource use. Rose Anne Devlin and Quentin Grafton lay out the analysis of property rights and their bearing on environmental and resource problems in a thorough, comprehensive and simple way. -- Henk Folmer, Wageningen Agricultural University, The Netherlands

Overall, excellent and very well written. How nice to see complex ideas brought down to earth and explained so well. -- David Pearce, University College London, UK

‘This is an excellent book, both clearly written and lively . . . We therefore wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone. . .’ -- – Tatjana Vogel and Stephan Dabbert, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture
