About this book

In this provocative new book, Bruce Yandle explores the relationship between common law and environmental protection, and he discusses how people can limit environmental impact while living in a world of common access. Yandle examines today's most pressing environmental and natural resource management problems, including water quality, the ozone layer, acid rain, and access to groundwater contained in aquifers. He argues that common sense should dictate the simplest, least costly ways to address the problem of access to limited natural resources. Yandle challenges readers to invent methods for creating wealth by building appropriate institutions and enforcing intelligent laws. This book is essential reading for students and scholars of environmental economics, politics, and law.

Bruce Yandle has an uncanny ability to make sense out of hard problems. In this book, he makes sense out of what many people see as one of the hardest problems we face today: the environment. If you really want to understand the causes of environmental problems and the potential ways to solve them, the solution is simple --READ THIS BOOK; it only makes sense!--Benson, Bruce L.
