Abstract or Summary
  • Stronger microeconomic foundations to dynamic renewable resource models lead to rethinking the commons problem. Specifications of technology consistent with microeconomics allow reinterpretating the market failure under open access for common resources, the dynamic economic optimum, and global commons issues in general. The market failure is broader and deeper than previously understood, both open access and optimum resource stocks vary considerably from conventional wisdom and can be difficult to distinguish between, both optimum and open access steady-state equilibriums may be absent, and different microeconomic specifications can lead to strikingly different results. Better understanding this commons problem and how to analyze it consistent with microeconomic principles in turn opens up its reinterpretation and policies by which to address it. Even fully structured property rights are insufficient to solve the commons problem. An empirical example illustrates the effects of alternative microeconomic specifications upon optimum renewable resource management.
