Collective Action by Contract: Prior Appropriation Property Rights and the Development of Irrigation in the Western United States. Presented by Gary D. Libecap (Professor at the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science & Management and the Department of Economics, University of California, Santa Barbara; Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, MA; and Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution Stanford). We analyze the economic determinants and effects of prior appropriation water rights that were voluntarily implemented across an immense area of the U.S. West, abruptly replacing common-law riparian water rights. The analysis reveals institutional innovation that informs both our understanding of the development of property rights, prior appropriation, and contemporary water policy. RSVP by March 30. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 607-777-6799. Reception to follow. Sponsorship provided by Mario and Antoinette Romano Endowment, Harpur College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office and the Economics Department.
