Article entitled Common Ground: Risk, Scarcity, and Shared Resources in
Goan Agriculture. 
By Paul Axelrod  and Michelle Fuerch
in Human Ecology, VOL 34; NUMBER 1. Pages: 79-98.  ISSN: 0300-7839. 
In the Indian state of Goa, communally owned agricultural land has
persisted through indigenous state rule, colonial occupation and
postcolonial liberation. We show that in Goa, and indeed elsewhere in
the world, communally owned land provides protection against scarcity,
risk, and state revenue demands in wet rice agriculture. When wet rice
agriculture is the primary agricultural activity, communally owned land
is an effective way to utilize resources. These findings add to the
literature that challenges the inevitability of the tragedy of commonly
owned resources.
