How else do you propose mediating competition between two radically
different systems for producing timber, such as the Canadian vs. U.S.
systems for harvest from public lands? It seems to me that the Canadian
system is designed to produce a fixed volume from a given area of forest,
almost regardless of whether the market is up or down.
