The EPA’s new water rule could discourage private conservation efforts.

Ending the tragedy of the oceans: How property rights can save the world's fisheries.
PERC Fellow, Gary Libecap, talks with John Batchelor on the history of mineral rights in the United States.
Thanks to secure property rights, this technology has the power to resuscitate our lagging economy.
Many environmental problems are exaggerated. The threats facing marine fisheries, however, are quite real. There is a growing consensus among fishery experts that greater reliance on private-property rights can prevent overfishing and ensure sustainability.
Fisheries around the world are poorly managed. As Jonathan Adler explains in the UCLA Journal of Environmental Law and Policy, property-based management can conserve fisheries and maintain their value for human consumption.
