Endangered Species Act

  • Laura Huggins
  • In an interview on the John Batchelor Show, Laura Huggins discusses an economic approach to endangered species protection based on positive incentives. It’s time we listened to the great conservationist Aldo Leopold, who advocated a local approach to conservation in which private landowners conserve the public interest. Learn how Kent Carter and Hank Fischer, two enviropreneurs, are working to save species such as the California snail darter and the gray wolf through the use of property rights and markets.
