  • Property in the Commons: Origins and Paradigms
    • Authors: Obeng-Odoom; F.
      Pages: 9 - 19
      Abstract: This paper reflects on historical debates about creating property in the commons and how the debaters have approached the topic. It does so by systematizing existing insights, especially those provided by Richard Schlatter in his book, Private Property: A History of An Idea (1951). The analysis shows that Hardin’s widely quoted paper is not the founding essay that attacked the commons. Also, it demonstrates that there is no "property rights approach" in political economy but several property rights approaches not only between heterodox and orthodox political economy but also within heterodox perspectives. The evidence is clearly that not much has changed in the debates about the commons except, perhaps, the geographical emphasis and the identity of the dramatis personae fanning the attacks on the commons, but not the economic interests supporting the decimation and dissipation of the commons.

  • Species Commodification: A Dialectical Perspective on Fisheries Policy
    • Authors: Austen, G; Jennings, S. M, Dambacher, J. M.
      Pages: 20 - 35
      Abstract: A theoretically promised confluence of favorable biological, economic, and social outcomes in neoliberal solutions for fisheries is illusory. The required commodification of the fish, including the species and accompanying oceanic commons enclosures, result in contradictions that cannot be understood within the neoclassical economic paradigm. A process of dialectical abstraction and qualitative modeling exposes the source and mechanism of the contradictions providing an alternative basis for discourse on the fishery and the commons.

  • Rethinking the Factors of Production for a World of Common Ownership and
           Sustainability: Europe and Latin America Compared
    • Authors: Cato, M. S; North, P.
      Pages: 36 - 52
      Abstract: The classical economists bequeathed us an understanding of the nature of economies in terms of three factors of production: land, labor, and capital. If we are to transcend the unsustainable and inequitable economy we live with today, an intellectual reinterpretation of these three factors is a vital first step. In this paper we provide such a liberating reinterpretation with examples from European and Latin American praxis.

  • The Car and the Commons
    • Authors: Newman; D.
      Pages: 53 - 65
      Abstract: This paper discusses the centrality of the automobile to experiencing modern life. Access to a car is considered essential to access vital services and, as such, automobile usage plays a crucial role in commoning. However, this is said to draw lines of inclusion and exclusion premised on financial status, which particularly excludes those in rural areas. Such issues are especially acute at a time when electric cars are being promoted as a sustainable transport, which actually contains the potential to further marginalize the less affluent, rendering matters of access questions of class. The paper concludes by suggesting that more attention need be given to alternatives from private car ownership, focusing on communal usages.

  • Exploring Commons Theory for Principles of a Socialist Governmentality
    • Authors: Dolenec, D; Zitko, M.
      Pages: 66 - 80
      Abstract: Acknowledging that the concept of the commons is increasingly considered valuable for uniting left struggles, we develop the theory of the commons by strengthening its link with a Marxist critique of capitalism. In order to do so, we draw parallels between the work of Elinor Ostrom on principles of sustainable governance and Branko Horvat’s theory of self-management developed in the context of socialist Yugoslavia. We employ Foucault’s concept of governmentality to address the need for a socialist political rationale and governing principles, drawing our starting points from Ostrom and Horvat. First, we leave behind commons theorizing that relies on "exodus" strategies, instead drawing inspiration from Yugoslav self-management as an attempt of linking up the firm to wider social relations aimed at creating egalitarian, radically democratic, and materially sustainable societies. Second, we propose that the search for alternatives to capitalism and etatism goes beyond a change in ownership regime, and into principles of governance. While much of the contemporary progressive political agenda is concerned with distributional issues, we propose that devising governance principles to disable the formation of class control is the crucial innovation needed to advance a socialist governmentality. Finally, formulating the principles of socialist governmentality requires abandoning our reliance on indefinite economic growth which is seriously threatening the material base of human life.

  • Acequias as Commons: Lessons for a Post-capitalist World
    • Authors: Gunn; C.
      Pages: 81 - 92
      Abstract: Acequias are a form of commons used to share scarce surface water for agricultural purposes. They have existed in the arid southwestern United States for centuries. In this paper I will argue that acequias are pre-capitalist organizations that convey important lessons for a post-capitalist world. The paper will also discuss La Vega, a grazing commons supported by the Hispanic culture. Both forms of the commons help to sustain low-income households many of whose members do not have regular or full-time wage-labor jobs, and they provide examples of sustainable agriculture in a fragile, high altitude environment. Within the study of political economy, they are an example of political struggles in the arena of material production and reproduction.

  • Commons-creating Society: On the Radical German Commons Discourse
    • Authors: Euler; J.
      Pages: 93 - 110
      Abstract: The main purpose of this contribution is to give an insight into the radical German commons discourse. It rejects naturalist conceptualizations of commons and rather emphasizes the social dimensions. Combining free software and traditional commons, it builds on and goes beyond the Ostrom’s research. Commons are seen as an enabling form and potential foundation for a decentralized and needs-oriented post-capitalist society free of personal and structural domination and beyond the market and state.

  • Technology and Property: Knowledge and the Commons
    • Authors: Dugger; W. M.
      Pages: 111 - 126
      Abstract: The application of scarcity and private property to technology is misguided because technology is a special kind of commons, particularly ill-suited for conversion to private property and market pricing. Emphasizing the de-centering of technology, the article explores technology’s communal aspects, Ostrom’s commons, and the dialectical process involved in the social construction of technology. An appendix adds institutional context.

  • Commons and the Public Domain: A Review Article and a Tentative Research
    • Authors: Dolcerocca, A; Coriat, B.
      Pages: 127 - 139
      Abstract: This article critically examines the concepts of the commons and the public domain as developed in the literature on law and economics, and in the legal literature on intellectual property. It aims to accomplish two things: reviewing the literature laying out diverse meanings associated with these terms and reintroducing them into radical political economy. The study of the commons and the public domain have long been neglected in the area of radical political economy, and the way these concepts have been developed in the literature reviewed is only marginally relevant to problems and methods of political economy. This article argues for a reassessment and redefinition of the commons and the public domain from the standpoint of radical political economy, and proposes a research agenda for the commons.

  • Knowledge Economy and the Commons: A Theoretical and Political Approach to
           Post-neoliberal Common Governance
    • Authors: Macias Vazquez, A; Alonso Gonzalez, P.
      Pages: 140 - 157
      Abstract: Knowledge is increasingly thought of as a common good. This is exhibited in the fact that many central economies are moving towards economic paradigms where knowledge plays a fundamental role. This paper explores the confluence between both processes, asking in what ways an economic model based on the knowledge commons can open up new socioeconomic scenarios in the face of overwhelming neoliberal financialization.

  • The Tragedy of the Anticommons in Knowledge
    • Authors: Zhou; Y.
      Pages: 158 - 175
      Abstract: The anticommons in knowledge is distinct from the anticommons in physical objects. The former is always tragic, the latter not necessarily so. For society at large, the tragedy of the anticommons is more serious when it involves knowledge than when it involves physical resources. Buchanan and Yoon’s (2000) formal model of the anticommons is incorrect even within the neoclassical context, and their neoliberal suggestion that single ownership is the socially optimal solution to the tragedy of the knowledge anticommons is misleading. This article argues that the only, epistemically and socially beneficial solution to the tragedy of the knowledge anticommons is to create, expand, and protect the knowledge commons. The article also constructs a simple formal model based on Bessen and Maskin’s (2006) sequential model, as a metaphor for how the comedy of the knowledge commons works. The analysis supports the worldwide movement for free knowledge, and dissents from the evolving political and academic consensus in China in favor of more restrictive intellectual property regimes.

  • Primitive Accumulation in the Cultural Commons
    • Authors: Sherman; Z.
      Pages: 176 - 188
      Abstract: A culture is a kind of common created by social communications and composed of both information and attention. Over the last hundred and forty years or so, the United States has seen an aggressive move toward the privatization of both the information and attention facets of the cultural commons. The model of a collectively governed commons offers a more democratic option than commodified communications.
