COMMON-PROPERTY GOOD: A good that's difficult to keep nonpayers from consuming, but use of the good by one person prevents use by others. Examples include oceans, the atmosphere, many lakes and streams, and large tracts of wilderness area or public parks. The term "common property" aptly describes the situation here, it's commonly owned and thus everyone has access to it, but it can be easily used up or destroyed. Many of our pollution problems occur because common property becomes a convenient place to dump waste materials. For efficiency, government needs to take charge of common-property goods, private exchange through markets can't do the job.

POLLUTION RIGHTS MARKET: A market-based system for the exchange of permits or "rights" to release pollution residuals into the environment. These pollution permits would be bought and sold in an organized market not unlike the stock market. Prices would vary according to the forces of supply and demand, allowing individual participants to buy and sell based on their particular circumstances. The total number of permits would be based on the amount of permissible pollution residuals that can be safely released into the environment during a given period of time. These permits could be given away or auction off to potential polluters.
