PERC ReportsLearn More >
PERC Reports, the magazine for free market environmentalism, has been exploring market approaches to environmental challenges for more than 30 years. "PERC Reports," according the UTNE Reader, “advocates solutions to environmental problems, finding solutions where others find only frustration." The magazine is available for free online and in print for PERC supporters.
Policy SeriesLearn More >
PERC’s Policy Series are longer-form essays that address timely environmental topics ranging from water markets to green jobs. Policy Series are aimed at policy makers or general audiences interested in an in-depth look at environmental issues from a market-based perspective.
Case StudiesLearn More >
Does free market environmentalism work in the real world? PERC Case Studies document on-the-ground examples of how property rights encourage resource stewardship. Whether it’s saving African rhinos or increasing in-stream flows, Case Studies demonstrate the successes of markets, and often the failures of government, at addressing environmental problems.
PERC fellows participate in a wide range of publications. Beyond PERC publications, their research appears in peer-reviewed journals and in online forums such as the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). Read their abstracts here.

BooksLearn More >
Since the publication of Free Market Environmentalism in 1991, books by PERC scholars have shaped the way we view environmental problems. PERC continues to “rethink the way we think” about the environment with books addressing a variety of topics including water, endangered species, environmental justice and even food.
GuidesLearn More >
Think tanks are often content with static research. At PERC, we recognize that research alone is not enough. We produce guides that educate policy makers on how to implement market-based reforms for ocean fisheries, water trading, and land conservation.
CurriculumLearn More >
PERC’s publications have been used as a curriculum in universities such as Stanford, Harvard, Purdue, and Tulane. To help educators include market-based ideas into tradition environmental economics and policy curricula, PERC has created a syllabus and other educational materials. PERC also has videos and podcasts, to help aid in classroom learning.
