About this book

Conventional economic analysis of property rights in natural resources is too narrow and restrictive to allow for effective comparisons between alternative institutional structures. In this book, a conceptual framework is developed for the analysis of these structures with illustrative application to the allocation of water resources.


Institutions and use of natural resources; institutions of water use for irrigation in the Murray-Darling Basin; static transaction costs in allocation of water resources; transaction costs and institutional change; dynamic transaction costs and option values in institutional change; policy analysis for institutional change.
