Walter Block: Free Market Environmentalism


Here I discuss how Free Market Environmentalism is not a contradiction. I argue that adhering to strict Property Rights is best for the environment. I explain The Tragedy of The Commons which is essential within this topic of Free Market Environmentalism. I provide historical examples to buttress the market fighting pollution and species endangerment. I also refute The Malthusian Theory on Slavery which ties in with The Tragedy of Commons and elucidates relevant incentives in this discussion.
