Market for ivory - prices, market failure and black markets

Ruth Tarrant

4th December 2015

This week on the Beyond the Bike adventure, Stuart and Claire have been investigating the impact of illegal ivory poaching near Lusaka. To support the Beyond the Bike investigation, we have put together a number of resources to link with the Economics curriculum; the resources explore how the global price of ivory is determined, the black market associated with ivory, the negative externalities associated with the ivory market, and possible policy solutions to this example of market failure.
