Tragedy of the Commons

The tragedy of the Commons, the notion, explicated by Garrett Hardin, that though we live in a Commons, individuals will practice selfish behaviours that are not in the common good and lead to overexploitation of resources. As a result:

  • Greenhouse Gases
  • Overgrazing
  • Non-renewable resources
  • Deforestation
  • Population growth
  • Overfishing
