Free Market Environmentalism: The Next Generation

Friday, April 12, 2013

The Property and Environment Research Center (PERC) is seeking investors in a project to market and share the third edition of Free Market Environmentalism, with the specific goal of reaching scholars, teachers, and students. First published in 1991 and revised in 2001, Terry L. Anderson and Donald R. Leal expect to publish the third edition in 2013. The third edition will have a slightly new twist; not only will it represent the “next generation” of the applications of free market environmentalism, it will feature chapters co-authored with the “next generation” of young scholars.  These scholars, with special knowledge of ecosystem management, water markets, public land management, and environmental entrepreneurship, to mention a few, have worked with Anderson and Leal to provide new examples and to signal that the next generation of scholars is being nurtured at PERC. To ensure that these ideas reach a broader audience, especially college and high school students, PERC will launch a marketing effort to put the book in the hands of professors and teachers and to encourage students to connect electronically with PERC.
