Scarcity, Conflict, and Equity in Allocating Public Recreation Resources.
Shelby, Bo; Danley, Mark
The conflict between the interests of commercial outfitters and private boaters in the use of whitewater rivers is examined. A discussion is presented on the literature on scarcity, allocation, and conflict among groups. These concepts are applied to the allocation of public resources on whitewater rivers. The conflicting interest groups are described, and an evaluation is offered of the current system for allocating use to these groups. (JD)
