Day 2 of Lincoln Institute of Land Policy Conference on Property Rights in Natural Resources
The second day of the conference was every bit as good as the first, with presentations and comments from the likes of Bill Fischel, Bob Ellickson, Richard Epstein, Henry Smith, Gary Libecap, Kerry Smith, and Katrina Wyman. Really, I should be mentioning everyone who participated both today and yesterday. After more than a year of planning with Greg Ingram and Yu-Hung Hong of the Lincoln Institute, the conference came off even better than Lin and I had hoped. We have every reason to think that the book, which will be the end result of the conference, will help close the wide gap between property theory and the empirical data.
