For generations economists have recognized the “problem of the commons.” The phrase harks back to when villagers all shared a common pasture. The natural incentive for each villager was to graze as many livestock on it as he could, because if instead he restricted his herd so the demand on the pasture’s grass growth was sustainable, his neighbors would run more livestock, the commons would still be exhausted, and he’d be left behind. When instead each person must own the land on which he grazed livestock, his incentive changed from short-term but fleeting gain to long-term sustained gain, so he grazed as many livestock as his pasture’s growth could sustain year after year, but no more.

Abundant, affordable, reliable energy, combined with economic freedom and limited, responsive government according to the rule of law, are indispensable to overcoming poverty. No society has risen out of poverty or can long stay out of it without both.
