By property rights, economists typically refer toprivate property rights, a key feature of which is being able legally to exclude others from using a good or asset.

1. One of the most basic conditions necessary for a capitalist economic system (in which people are allowed to pursue profit and in which market forces such as supply and demanddictate most of the system’s features) is the existence of private property and clear property rights. Property is anything that can be owned; it can be tangible (land, house, car, computer, shoes, carrots) or intangible (a bank-account balance, an investment such as a share of stock in a company, the patent on an invention). Private property is property that is owned by an individual or group of individuals (such as a company or corporation), rather than by the government or society at large.

These rules amount to a system of property rights, which define the extent to which any given c...

1. Property rights guarantee freedom because control of production is spread among many acting bodies; nobody has complete power of resources. Whether ‘society’ or central government controls the means of production; both have complete control. When governments own resources, a few people decide what to produce, how much to produce and for how much. Instead, millions of individuals own their own resources which they can use for whatever they see fit. This allows for the right and freedom for individuals to pursue their own interests. At the same time, it provides an incentive for people to live, work, and save.
