In the late 1990s the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) plans to operate an earth orbiting space station. For decades into the future the station is expected to play a dominant role in U.S. space research and in the commercialization of space. If the expectations are correct, then the station will be a complex of potentially valuable resources and services. Much sentiment exists within the government that the allocation of those resources should be based on some sort of market-oriented policy (a more "business-like" approach). This paper is part of a larger project that is intended to ascertain what that policy might be.
