Abstract

Can threatened resources be protected by consumer power rather than legislation? A recent idea suggests that, if enough consumers believe certain resources are worthy of protection, those resources can 'pay for their own survival'. This article describes a recent proposal to price the right of whales to live, and assesses its prospects for success.
