Holahan, William L.; Schug, Mark C.
Social Studies, v88 n6 p264-67 Nov-Dec 1997
Describes a classroom exercise designed to illustrate the economic aspects of common ownership, individual ownership, government regulation and to examine how these relate to conservation. The exercise involves the incremental distribution (via a turkey baster) of water between buckets marked "now" and "future." Different rules replicate different economic relationships. (MJP)
