Notes on: John Umbeck, A Theory of Property Rights: With Application to the California Gold Rush, Ames, Iowa: Iowa State University Press, 1981. Essentially the argument is that a miner has to consider the tradeoff between the benefits of having a bigger claim and the opportunity cost of the additional time needed to defend the bigger claim against encroachers. Clearly one miner might spend all of his time protecting a big claim and have no time to work the claim.

The California Gold Rush: A Study of Emerging Property Rights. The concept of property rights is not an easy one to define unambigu-ously. The key to understanding it is probably to be found in the notion of exclusivity
The California Gold Rush: A Study of Emerging Property Rights. Department of Economics, Purdue University. The key to understanding it is probably to be found in the notion of exclusivity. For an individual or group of individuals to claim a right to some property they must first be able to exclude all other potential claimants. With the competition excluded, the individual can then decide how the property will be used and who shall get the income derived from it. Of less importance, but generally included in the concept of property right, is the notion of transferability.
