  • 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.

  • Tourism at the glaciers

    Espiner, Stephen R.; Wilson, Jude; Purdie, Heather

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    This presentation is the result of collaboration between researchers from the University of Canterbury and Lincoln University, bringing together our respective interests in the physical changes occurring at the Westland Glaciers and the consequential social effects - especially those related to the perceptions of visitors to the region. The recent changes at Fox and Franz Josef are evident to those who live and work here, and to those who have monitored these features over time. One of the aspects we wanted to explore is how aware visitors might be of changes, how their expectations about the glaciers matched their experiences, and how critical the glaciers themselves were to the ‘value’ of the Westland National Park experience. In addressing these sorts of questions, alongside improving our understanding of the physical conditions, the intention is to add to a database of information that can be used by those who live and work here, to make informed decisions about future delivery of the tourism experience. This on-going work is aligned to international studies of tourism in glacier environments – such as that in Athabasca Glacier, Jasper National Park – also experiencing environmental change.
