Why bison were worth more dead than alive in the 19th century.
Peter Hill, Terry Anderson
With Californians sounding the alarm over the current drought, San Diego's Mike Slater invited PJ Hill to provide some historical perspective and Terry Anderson to outline practical solutions.

Dino Falaschetti, PERC's Executive Director, shares a story on the lessons of green energy policy and green growth.
, Matthew Denhart
Our nation continues to pile precautionary energy policies onto a struggling economy, but we’re bumping into an inconvenient truth.
Should the precautionary principle guide environmental policy? As Dino Falaschetti writes, rather than preventing harm, the precautionary principle can constrain economic opportunity while doing little to improve environmental quality.
If our challenge is “change,” we might do better by turning to America’s strength in financial services rather than its relative inexperience in centrally directing resources.
At PERC, we believe that the environment and liberty must go together. Our Environment and Liberty Campaign launches a new generation of market solutions that advance both liberty and the environment.
