Based on the basic theories of welfare economics and industrial economics, this paper analyzes the economic principles followed by the pricing of state-owned public resource scenic spots, and gives policy suggestions on the pricing of state-owned scenic spots. The conclusion shows that the state-owned public resource scenic spots should implement hierarchical pricing, and the government should guide the scenic spots to take functional finance as the goal and follow the policy-oriented ticket price scheme with marginal cost pricing or free opening. The government should improve the incentive and supervision mechanism so that state-owned scenic spots can serve regional economic growth and national well-being.
