Read aguanomics for the world’s best analysis of the politics and economics of water I just posted this paper and welcome comments or feedback.

I plan to submit it to a journal (perhaps the Journal of Economic Education) in the near future.

“Teaching Common-Pool Resource Management”

Abstract: This paper describes the structure, incentives, assessments, and results of a course in common pool resource management (CPRM) that can be run in 8+ weeks with 15-30 students. The course structure helps students learn about the complexity of CPRM by grouping students into “too large” groups where coordination will be difficult as well as tasking those groups to find and address a local CPRM problem. This “play within a play” structure creates numerous opportunities for feedback, adjustment and reflection for students as well as the instructor. Data and results from three iterations of the course are discussed.
