Privatizing Public Lands Doesn’t Mean Turning Them Into Shopping Centers

It is rightfully said that, if the American economy is the 7th Wonder of the World, then American economic ignorance must be the 8th. Furthermore, the current (Keynesian) system is nothing but backdoor centralized planning (aka communism). — jtl, 419

But what if these lands were somehow removed from federal control. What exactly would happen?… It is often assumed that public lands would be immediately strip mined or turned into housing developments… The economic realities, however, suggest otherwise.

Protected public lands in the United States — including national forests, national parks, and similar areas — cover nearly 500,000 square miles, or 14 percent of the land area of the United States. The existence of these government-controlled lands gives the federal government immense power over much of the United States, and in some US states, the federal government controls a majority of the land area.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
