Friday, July 22, 2016
8:00 AM - NOON

Can economic growth promote environmental quality? 

Can private property rights and the rule of law do a better job of protecting the environment than government bureaucracies and regulations? 

Can markets and the process of voluntary exchange foster cooperation, rather than conflict, over environmental resources?
 
Environmental scholars and entrepreneurs from PERC say "yes" to all of the above. They will explain why in a half-day seminar introducing participants to free market environmentalism.
 
Event starts with juice and coffee at 8:00 AM; program starts at 8:30 AM. Lunch is provided.
 
The event is sponsored by the Woodford Foundation for Limited Government. Registration limited to 75 attendees. Register online.
