  • When the law is silent, trespassers w... : law and power in implied property rights

    Brower, Ann L.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    When it comes to property, the law does not always rule.We looked at prices emerging from on-going and hotly contested bilateral exchange of property interests in land in New Zealand high country of the South Island.Does relative value of property rights exchanged drive prices? In other words, does an economic interpretation of the law drive prices?This question has two components: who owns what rights? What is the value of those rights?Empirical economics research is used to impute the value of the property rights, and four competing interpretations of the law are tested concerning ownership of property rights in this exchange.Found that none of the stated arguments about who holds which rights (and how much they’re worth) explains the observed pattern of prices.So we turned to dynamics of the negotiation, and other ideas of political economy to offer explanations of the prices.

  • Closing the deal: politics and economics of tenure review

    Brower, Ann L.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    Until 1992, land on the eastern slopes of New Zealand’s South Island was owned by the Crown and leased for pastoral sheep grazing. This land in Crown pastoral leases comprised 20% of the South Island, or 10% of NZ’s landmass. Since 1992, the pastoral leaseholders have been able to enter negotiations with the Crown to split the leased land – land below 1000m is privatised, whilst land with conservation values (usually above 1000m) shifts into public conservation land. The papers I will present use the theories of rents, bargaining, administrative politics, and public choice to examine financial outcomes from New Zealand land reform. Results are inconsistent with payments arising from a bargain in which both the Crown and lessee advocate to their full potential, and are instead consistent with the Crown backing down to lessees’ desires for a generous deal. This back-down stems either from 'bureaucratic coping', or from the addition of a bureaucratic middleman between the Crown principal and its negotiator subagent, exacerbating the principal-agent problem.

  • Watching cows: associating farmer wellbeing and cows

    Hunt, Lesley M.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    This presentation highlights the relationship between wellbeing achieved by farming and the care of cows with dairy farmers participating in the ARGOS programme. Its purpose is to indicate how environmental care might be part of farmers’ everyday life and become part of their sense of wellbeing and way of living a meaningful life. It also discusses on how dairy farmers can associate environmental issues with their own wellbeing. Information on organic versus conventional dairy farming was presented as well.

  • Climate variability and climate change: implications for tourism

    Becken, Susanne; Hendrikx, J.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    Tourism often depends on the weather for participation, satisfaction, safety, and business viability. Tourism also depends on natural resources and environmental attractions. Climate models predict increasing temperatures, changing intensity and distribution of rainfall, decreased snow cover, and sea level rise. The tourism industry needs to plan proactively and adapt to variability and change.

  • Managing & designing stress, disturbance & succession of urban wastelands for biodiversity

    Slupski, J.; Meurk, C. D.; Ignatieva, Maria; Greenep, H.; Stewart, Glenn H.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    The main goals of the workshop were to identify ways in which ecology and design can be successfully integrated and to determine future research and teaching directions in urban ecology and ecological design. Now more than ever we need to understand the role of urban ecology and design in dealing with social, climatic, economic and biodiversity crises in a rapidly changing world. This presentation focuses on managing and designing stress, disturbance and succession of urban wastelands for biodiversity.

  • Oil, the global economy and tourism

    Becken, Susanne

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    The availability and price of oil are intimately linked to the global economyand as a result to tourism. This paper presents the results from research ontourism and oil, undertaken with a particular focus on New Zealand as a long hauldestination in the light of dwindling global oil resources.The findings of four distinct research phases will be reported in anintegrative analysis.The results highlight that economic prosperity in countries of origin, andin particular tourists’ income, is of critical importance for outbound tourism, especiallyto long haul destinations. The econometric analysis of in-country behaviour,such as consumption and regional dispersion, reveal that variables such as countryof origin, travel purpose or length of stay are currently more important determinantsof travel behaviour than fuel prices. Coupled with differentiated oil vulnerabilities by different countriesand different levels of price elasticity, the importance of market mix becomes evident.Tourism businesses can reduce their oil vulnerability by addressing a range ofrisk factors. Government policy and industry initiatives can support these microeconomic adaptation processes.Little research is available on the importance of oil shocks for tourismand this paper is an attempt to address this gap. The findings are specific to NewZealand but will be of interest to other long-haul destinations. The analysis integratesacross a range of research methods.
