Resource rents from Aboriginal lands in Canada / Hugh M. Grant.: Z1-1991/1-41-83E-PDF
“The concept of economic rent has assumed a central role in discussions of aboriginal rights in Canada. Large-scale resource development have generated significant economic benefits, but also enormous social and environmental costs. Economic rent is defined as the net social benefit accruing from the exploitation of natural resources and, therefore, the potential income accruing to the owner of the land. The distribution of rents between private firms, governments and Aboriginal peoples, however, has been highly unequal. In particular, Aboriginal people have shared few of the benefits and borne an inordinate share of the costs"--Intro., p. 1.
