Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to interpret, from the viewpoint of an economist, some of the causes of the 'Sagebrush Rebellion,' a contemporary land reform movement directed toward the Bureau of Land Management and its control of the public domain. Distributive equity concerns on the part of 'Sagebrush Rebellion' supporters are identified, as are the contributions of neoclassical welfare theory to the debate. Reflections of those social and theoretical concerns in Federal legislation and agency policy and regulations are explored.
