  • Private property

  • Common property

  • Public property

  • Open access (res nullius)


Coase theorem l.jpg

Coase Theorem:

    • Trade eliminates the pareto relevant externality

    • Resource allocation is invariant to the initial assignment of resources

This is the coase theorem l.jpg

This is the Coase Theorem

  • When property rights are fully specified, assigned, transferable, divisible, secure and transaction costs are zero (and zero income effect)

    • Trade eliminates the externality

    • Final resource allocation is invariant to initial assignment of resources/rights
