Soil Depletion and Land Rent

This paper attempts to define land rent net of soil depletion. The paper is an outgrowth of a larger study’ of the meaning and function of land rent, and is not represented as more than a subspecialized monograph focused on its fragment of the wider topic. Some economists will challenge one or more of its implicit postulates, but it offers only an introductory gesture at their defense, as that would otherwise constitute a separate subject. The paper does sow, where germane, some wild oats, hopefully germinable, on issues in conservation, tax policy, and mineral depletion, but only as obiter dicta.
