How to free our national parks from politics

Railroads were instrumental in creating America’s national parks. Originally hatched as a way to get tourists to board trains headed West, the national park idea was to generate profits. Today, our National Park Service faces a $12 billion backlog. PERC’s Terry Anderson talks to John Batchelor about how to generate revenue for our national parks, free the parks from politics, and get politics out of the parks.

Please note: There’s a 60-second ad before Terry’s segment.
