1 Section Notes Week 14 Outline Key Concepts Announcements Potential Output Water Trading Graph Economic Threshold Pest Control and Threshold Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Biotech and Precaution Precautionary Principle Water Trading Graph Here’s a graph depicting the transition from Queuing to Market: senior rights holders are given the rights to their historical usage and allowed to trade these to junior rights holders. BEFORE TRADE AFTER TRADE Rights Holder price water use profit price water use profit Senior 0 a max I+II+III w * a * I+II+III+IV Junior n/a, 0 0 w * a * I A couple assumptions to note: VMP is “value of marginal product”: the extra benefit of applying one more unit of water. Total water available, A, is completely used by the senior rights holders when given free access. Yet total land acres, L, is not completely used under this Queuing system, but would be under a market. All land is homogenous, thus under market every acre uses same water/acre, which must be A L . Profit areas (e.g. “I+II+III”) are of course neglecting other things like fixed costs that are subtracted as well to find profit.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
