Cato Daily Podcast: Property Rights as a Foundation for Conservation

  • Holly Fretwell
  • PERC’s Holly Fretwell sits down with Caleb Brown of the Cato Daily Podcast to discuss the importance of property rights in conserving our natural world. Conservation needs to make economic sense to landowners, and property rights, along with functioning markets, are essential tools for getting those conservation incentives right. Property rights give landowners incentives to balance conservation with resource development and provide opportunities for entrepreneurial solutions to environmental problems.
