Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

Interviewer: Josh Zepps

For the first time since the 1800s, wolves are roaming Germany. As packs wander into the suburbs of Berlin, farmers and conservationists are divided. How should modern societies deal with the resurgence of dangerous, but protected, species?

Reed Watson gives an economic perspective of the reintroduction of wolves in the American West on Huffington Post Live. As the other participants discuss various methods of reducing livestock predation or compensating ranchers for lost livestock, he suggests entrepreneurs, who find ways to transform liabilities into assets, as a potential solution.
