Economic Analysis of the Improvement and Conservation of Natural Resources

New Media  | 18 de marzo de 2010  | Vistas: 17

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. In this conference, Randy T. Simmons describes free-market environmentalism and the benefits it can provide to communities, wildlife, and the natural environment.
