Market forces are delivering environmental quality. True environmentalists, those who seek to protect the precious biological envelopes that support life and are not simply dedicated to the replacement of individual freedom with command-and-control regulation, will be encouraged to know that markets are on their side.

Using examples, this work demonstrates why Americans should turn to entrepreneurs in the private sector rather than the federal government to guarantee the protection and improvement of environmental quality. It aims to offer alternatives to traditional thinking about the environment.

Well written with sufficient detail to show the reader solutions other than the well tested and failed policies of using the heavy hand of government. Ownership and the profit incentive will, when properly combined with the goal of improving the environment, produce positive results.

Terry L. Anderson is also the author of books such as PROPERTY RIGHTS (HOOVER INST PRESS PUBLICATION),Accounting for Mother Nature: Changing Demands for Her Bounty,Greener Than Thou (HOOVER INST PRESS PUBLICATION),The Not So Wild, Wild West: Property Rights on the Frontier (Stanford Economics and Finance), etc. Donald R. Leal is also author of books such as Government vs. Environment (The Political Economy Forum),Evolving Approaches to Managing Marine Recreational Fisheries,Evolving Property Rights in Marine Fisheries (The Political Economy Forum), etc. In 1991 they jointly wrote Free Market Environmentalism.

They wrote in the first chapter of this 1997 book, "For the past twenty-five years, environmental policy in the United States and around the world has relied on command-and-control regulations... This book considers an alternative approach---enviro-capitalism---that begins when environmental entrepreneurs discover new opportunities for improving environmental quality and then figure out how to produce it in the private sector... The stories in this book support the growing realization that markets can be a powerful force in the environmental movement."

They begin by noting that among the early leaders of the environmental movement (such as Audubon, Leopold, and Muir), "only Aldo Leopold saw the importance of linking the conservation movement to entrepreneurship, with all the trappings of finance, contracting, marketing, and even profits." (Pg. 2) Leopold questioned the growing trend of his time "to rely mainly on government for conservation. He came to view such a reliance as a 'band-aid' approach..." (Pg. 49) Leopold "knew that farmers and ranchers had to survive financially and urged that we create an institutional environment favorable to private stewardship." (Pg. 177)

They state that "Making a profit in the process is what enviro-capitalism is all about." (Pg. 103) They note that, in contrast with state foresters (who "are required to generate profits for public schools"), little incentive exists for enviro-capitalists with the U.S. Forest Service, which "has no such connection between revenue and costs." (Pg. 170)

They conclude on the note, "pure socialism provides ugly results. (With) Mixed management of resources... results are still bad. To harness the forces of enviro-capitalism, we must use market incentives and allow enviro-capitalists to do good for the environment." (Pg. 180)

Not quite as thought-provoking as their 1991 book, this more pro-business book is nevertheless of interest to those interested in environmental issues.

Enviro-Capitalists is a must-read for anybody interested in both business and the environment. Anderson and Leal give plenty of examples to back up their thesis that economy and ecology can produce positive synergies. 'Doing good while doing well' has been an inspiration to me.---Ben Harkema

This is a faith based environmentalism - that is you must believe in the 'idea' of the free market for it to work. And sorry to say, that faith has been tested and found wanting. Just in the past few years - nay decades - we have seen various ways in which the 'free market' has been co-opted and corrupted - from the S&L scandal. energy de-reg, to the various post-bubble stock market scandals. And now the authors want to place our natural resources into the hands of the free market?
No thank you sirs.
Better laws and total reviews of suspect agencies like the BLM and Army Corp. than this so called 'free market.'
