Commons, Alliances, and Shared Resources
ECON 320
Fall 2010 not offered

Some forms of capital are only useful in large units and therefore need to be shared by multiple users. Examples include agricultural and forest land, fisheries, radio spectrum, highways, computer platforms, and irrigation systems. This course uses microeconomic theory--especially game theory--to study methods of sharing capital, including common property, formal and informal alliances, clubs, open source, and government regulation and ownership. Students interested in the environment, rural development, innovation, transportation, and communications networks should consider this course, as we will cover all of those topics and see their economic similarities.
