520 3  "In the 1980s the Thai government tried to legalize 
       squatters by issuing special titles that restricted the 
       sale and rental of the land. Using data from 2,874 farming
       households collected in 1997, the author finds that in 
       places where these government titles where issued, leased 
       plots are more likely to be titled than those that are 
       self-cultivated. For these areas, he uses a model to 
       estimate a 6 percent risk premium in the rental rate for 
       untitled plots. In other areas, however, land rights play 
       no role in the decision to lease land and the rental rate 
       of untitled plots does not include a risk premium. The 
       results indicate that this policy distorted the land 
       rental market by triggering a sense of insecurity among 
       landowners. "--World Bank web site.
