Excluding Destruction: Towards a Environmentally Sustainable Libertarian Property Rights Regime

John Hadley

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    In this paper I argue that the potentially environmentally destructive scope of a libertarian property rights regime can be narrowed by applying reasonable limits to those rights. I will claim that excluding the right to destroy from the libertarian property rights bundle is consistent with self-ownership and Robert Nozick's interpretation of the Lockean proviso.
