  • Can the power of markets be harnessed to improve environmental quality and advance conservation? PERC Policy Director Hannah Downey joins Chelsea Follett of the HumanProgress podcast to discuss market solutions to environmental challenges.

    The two discuss a range of topics including how the Endangered Species Act disincentivizes private landowners from assisting with species recovery and habitat restoration, as well as the importance of active forest management in preventing catastrophic wildfire.
