How Economics Can be Applied to the Environment

  • Holly Fretwell
  • PERC research fellow Holly Fretwell joins the Six Cents Report podcast to discuss free market environmentalism. They explore the power of economic incentives and compare a government-mandated, regulatory approach to conservation to a market-based, cooperative approach. The origin of property rights, the tragedy of the commons, and innovative examples of “enviropreneurs” are also discussed.
