Most of the world’s precious nature reserves and regions known for biodiversity are not privately owned, as the government deems their preservation too important to let private people take care of them. What happened as a result of this noble undertaking is known as the “tragedy of the commons”  – instead of having “everyone” (or rather their government delegates) control the public space, no one will be really interested in preserving its quality, since every individual expects someone else to do the job. The lack of incentivization prevents our government delegates from doing a good job, as their income does not depend on customer demand or market competition, but rather on how many favours one has accomplished for one’s supervisor and his cronies.
