Economic Analysis of the Improvement and Conservation of Natural Resources

18 de marzo de 2010   | Vistas: 16 |  

There is a common misperception that business and environmental interests are incompatible, yet programs around the world have demonstrated that environmental quality improves with economic growth.

Simmons discusses examples of free-market environmentalism in action and examines the importance of property rights in successful conservation campaigns.
