Earth Day 2017

Today is Earth Day.  Protecting and improving the environment is a big thing for me; in fact, it is one of the many reasons I love free markets.  One of the major champions of free market environmentalism is the Property and Environment Research Center (PERC) located in Bozeman, Montana.  I highly recommend checking out their blog and publications.

In the interest of full disclosure, I have no financial ties to PERC, but there are academic ties.  One of my professors, Thomas Stratmann, is a senior fellow.

  1. Capitalism has done more for the environment than government. It is funny that we celebrate Earth Day on Vladimir Lenin’s birthday. It was his Soviet Union that created the Aral Sea environmental disaster among others.


    • Indeed, Eastern Europe prior to the fall of Communism was an ecological disaster and China’s coal companies befouling the air in Beijing are mostly, if not all, state-owned.
