Alaska's Permanent Fund Dividend: Examining its Suitability as a Model
Howard, Michael W.
Contributors discuss the Alaska Permanent Fund (APF) and Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) as a model both for resource policy and for social policy. This book explores whether other states, nations, or regions would benefit from an Alaskan-style dividend. Many other jurisdictions could create similar funds and dividends, but most of them under-tax resources, giving resources away to corporations who sell them back to the people at higher prices. The book also looks at possible ways that the model might be altered and improved. The contributors look back at the success of the APF and forward (using theory and empirical investigation) to see how the Alaska model can be of use in other places.
