Improving the Environment Through a Market-Based Approach

A podcast on the role of markets in providing good environmental quality.

PERC’s Director of Outreach and Research Fellow, Holly Fretwell, sits down with the Acton Institute to discuss free market environmentalism on the podcast Acton Line. Most headlines about the environment only tell one story: that the environment is on the decline due to economic development. But is this true? What we observe is, in fact, quite the opposite. As nations grow wealthier, their ability to prioritize and care for the environment improves. Markets are actually a powerful tool to address the environmental issues our world faces today.
