    PERC research fellow Shawn Regan sits down with John Batchelor of The John Batchelor Show to discuss free market environmentalism and its track record. Around the globe, we can find examples of markets and property rights working to solve a variety of environmental problems. From increasing streamflow to diminishing overfishing to protecting critical wildlife habitat, a free market approach to environmentalism delivers lasting results. In the episode, they specifically discuss catch shares and marine fisheries, water markets, and the importance of private lands in providing wildlife habitat.
