Dick owns a dog whose barking annoys Dick's neighbor Jane. Suppose that the benefit of owning the dog is worth $700 to Dick and that Jane bears a cost of $500 from the barking. Assuming Dick has the legal right to keep the dog, a possible private solution to this problem is that

a. There is no private solution that would improve this situation.

b. Jane pays Dick $650 to get rid

of the dog.

c. Jane pays Dick $800 to get rid of the dog.

d. Dick pays Jane $600 for her

inconvenience.

-Can private solutions always be reached with the Coase Theroem?

-But in this case Dick has the legal rights, so does it mean he could chose not to pay Jane any money? so the answer would be A?

I agree, I too would go with a)
