Description

The Gridlock Economy: How Too Much Ownership Wrecks Markets, Stops Innovation, and Costs Lives

Michael Heller

Basic Books

July 7, 2008

25 new runways would eliminate most air travel delays in America. Why cant we build them? 50 patent owners are blocking a major drug maker from creating a cancer cure. Why wont they get out of the way? 90% of our broadcast spectrum sits idle while American cell phone service lags far behind Japans and Koreas. Why are we wasting our airwaves? 98% of African American-owned farms have been sold off over the last century. Why cant we stop the loss? All these problems are really the same problem-one whose solution would jump-start innovation, release trillions in productivity, and help revive our slumping economy. Every so often an idea comes along that transforms our understanding of how the world works. Michael Heller has discovered a market dynamic that no one knew existed. Usually, private ownership creates wealth, but too much ownership has the opposite effect-it creates gridlock. When too many people own pieces of one thing, whether a physical or intellectual resource, cooperation breaks down, wealth disappears, and everybody loses.

The Gridlock Economy is a startling, accessible biography of an idea. Nothing is inevitable about gridlock. It results from choices we make about how to control the resources we value most. We can unlock the grid; this book shows us where to start.
