The Endangered Species Act and Federalism

A new book from RFF Press features a chapter by PERC scholars Terry Anderson and Reed Watson. The Endangered Species Act and Federalism, edited by Buzz Thompson and Kaush Arha, explores the role of states and local governments in protecting biodiversity in the United States.

Anderson and Watson’s chapter provides an economic assessment of environmental federalism, focusing on the transaction costs of species management at various levels of government authority. The text is now available from RFF Press.
