dc.description.abstract "The original purpose for which the chapters in this volume arose have to do, primarily, with intellectual imperialism. That is, the extent to which orthodoxy has come to view the 'development problem' through a particular lens that obtains its character from the very cultural milieu of mainstream economics, and--to a lesser extent--sociology and anthropology. This orthodoxy, at least among development economists and administrators, is generally without reservation when it comes to prescriptions about how natural resources ought to be owned and managed. So absorbing and universal is the wisdom of the market and atomistic choice among economic agents that there simply is no possibility that collective management of natural resources might be efficient and in the long-run interest of resource integrity. The 'tragedy of the commons' allegory is final proof--as if any were needed--that joint responsibility is a license to destruction." en_US
