  • The Technology of Property Right describes the influence of technology and technological change on the definition and enforcement of property rights. In a historical context, barbed wire provides the quintessential example of how technology can lower the cost of defining and enforcing property rights. This book provides more modern examples for fisheries, whales, water quantity, and various pollutants which affect air and water quality.
