Abstract

Reviews three perspectives relevant to the balance of private and public interests in land resources. The first concerns the technical feasibility of private exploitation of publicly held lands - in this case the geological problems of finding oil and gas on wilderness. The second involves economic efficiency: the numerous costs and benefits, public and private, of such changes in property rights. The final perspective concerns valuative questions of social welfare. After a brief discussion of each, a conclusion proposes some general guidelines for future policy.-from Author
