Life in the American West requires constant adaption to new realities.
Volume 39, No.2, Winter 2020
This special issue of PERC Reports, supported by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, explores the many challenges and opportunities facing the ever-changing West. Whether it’s resolving disputes over the use of natural resources, meeting growing demands for outdoor recreation, or reducing the threat of catastrophic wildfires, the ever-changing West requires us to adapt. The challenge is to do so in ways that respect property rights, encourage voluntary exchange, and promote cooperation to conserve the region’s precious resources.
