E-mail: ndcampbell@ngesu.edu As Bohanon and Coelho state, the literature concerning the allocation of public domain is large, well-established, and growing. Bohanon and Coelho do an ef®cient job walking the novice through the standard, and some not-so-standard articles in the ®eld. Bohanon and Coelho have done a good turn by focusing their attention on Oklahoma. Outside of a select few articles, such as Alston and Spiller (1992) economists have overlooked Oklahoma's unique circumstances. Arrel M. Gibson, one of Oklahoma's historians, has pedagogically developed the theme of Oklahoma as anomaly (Gibson, 1981). It is amazing that economists, ever in search of interesting phenomena on which to bring their tools to bear, have overlooked Oklahoma. Bohanon and Coelho also provide a demonstration of how very simple, accessible, yet formal economics can elucidate a world, and how formal economics can be used as a tool for understanding history. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics Springer Journals

Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics, 19:2, 161±164 (1999) # 1999 Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston. Manufactured in The Netherlands. Comment on Bohanon and Coelho, ``The Costs of Free Land: The Oklahoma Land Rushes'' NOEL D. CAMPBELL, PH.D. Assistant Professor of Business Administration, North Georgia College and State University, 100 College Circle, Dahlonega, GA 30597. E-mail: ndcampbell@ngesu.edu As Bohanon and Coelho state, the literature concerning the allocation of public domain is large, well-established, and growing. Bohanon and Coelho do an ef®cient job walking the novice through the standard, and some not-so-standard articles in the ®eld. Bohanon and Coelho have done a good turn by focusing their attention on Oklahoma. Outside of a select few articles, such as Alston and Spiller (1992) economists have overlooked Oklahoma's unique circumstances. Arrel M.
