!@#$%^& owns a dog whose barking annoys !@#$%^&'s neighbor Jane. Suppose that the benefit of owning the dog is worth $700 to !@#$%^& and that Jane bears a cost of $500 from the barking. Assuming !@#$%^& 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 !@#$%^& $650 to get rid
of the dog.
c. Jane pays !@#$%^& $800 to get rid of the dog.
d. !@#$%^& pays Jane $600 for her
inconvenience.

-Can private solutions always be reached with the Coase Theroem?
-But in this case !@#$%^& 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)
