PERC Reports

The magazine of Free Market environmentalism

Vol 41, No. 2

Winter 2022

In the American West, the response to drought has historically been to divert more water, build dams, or pump groundwater. But many of those options are no longer politically or economically feasible. To adapt, western communities are going to have to find ways to do more with less water—and to do so through cooperation instead of conflict.

This special issue of PERC Reports explores the West’s water crisis and how markets can address today’s shortages.

PERC Reports: The Magazine for Free Market Environmentalism has been exploring market solutions to environmental problems for more than four decades. Now published semiannually, the magazine examines everything from public lands management to market adaptations to climate change to endangered species conservation.
