Why Commons Aren't Always Tragic

Who is Elinor Ostrom and why is she getting the The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel? Here's a video to help answer those questions. You can see why some say this is another Nobel Prize related to the problems of climate change.

If you can't see the video watch it on YouTube here.

Professor Ostrom is another female economist I could watch all day. The first is, of course, Jodi Beggs.
