PERC Reports

The magazine of Free Market environmentalism

Vol 42, No. 1

Fall 2023

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, one of the nation’s most well-known and far-reaching environmental laws. Over the past half-century, however, the law has had mixed results. With more species added, but few recoveries, the act has become a growing source of controversy due to its significant regulatory burdens and lack of recovery progress.

This special issue of PERC Reports explores the past, present, and future of the Endangered Species Act, with an eye toward getting the incentives right to recover species.

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.
