Enviro-capitalists : doing good while doing well by Terry L Anderson( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing that Americans should turn to private entrepreneurs rather than the federal government to guarantee the protection and improvement of environmental quality, the authors document numerous examples of how entrepreneurs have satisfied the growing demand for environmental quality. Beginning with historical cases from the turn of the century, they illuminate the benefits of entrepreneurial participation in wildlife preservation, aquatic habitat production, and environmentally friendly housing development. As government budgets shrink and more people question the efficacy of government regul

The not so wild, wild west : property rights on the frontier by Terry L Anderson( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors emphasize that ownership of resources evolves as those resources become more valuable or as establishing property rights becomes less costly. Rules evolving at the local level will be more effective because local people have a greater stake in the outcome. This theory is brought to life in the colorful history of Indians, fur trappers, buffalo hunters, cattle drovers, homesteaders, and miners. The book concludes with a chapter that takes lessons from the American frontier and applies them to our modern "frontiers"--The environment, developing countries, and space exploration."--Jacket

Sovereign nations or reservations? : an economic history of American Indians by Terry L Anderson( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lifestyle of American Indians before European settlers arrived several centuries ago is often held up today as a model of environmental sensitivity and communitarian cooperation. But is it really true? In this bold book, Terry Anderson debunks much of the romanticism surrounding American Indian culture. American Indians, he argues, developed forms of property rights, contracts, and market exchanges resembling those used by modern Western cultures. Anderson further argues that much of the poverty among Indian tribes living on reservations today is due to U.S. government policies that deprive Indians of their property rights and impose collective decision making on them unnaturally. We do a great disservice to Indians, Anderson concludes, by imposing on them not only our bureaucracy but also a romantic image of Indian life that does not square with the historical record

Water markets : priming the invisible pump by Terry L Anderson( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anderson and Snyder argue that water markets can also play an important role in solving the problem of pollution and ground water runoff. Markets not only facilitate instream flows that dilute pollution; they also help control discharges into streams and lakes. Before the Clean Water Act of 1972, for example, courts used common law to define property rights in water, and lawsuits based on trespass, nuisance, and other torts were brought against polluters. Fortunately, the use of water markets has increased during the past decade. Many environmentalists now find common ground with economists in advocating market prices for water. This book shows how water markets are working in the United States and around the world and where water policy is headed

Property rights and Indian economies by Property rights and Indian economies( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most research on American Indian economies seeking to explain why Indians have remained near the bottom of the economic ladder has concentrated on resource endowments. This approach has focused policy attention on creating government programs to expand resource exploitation either by encouraging non-Indians to develop reservation resources or by directly enhancing reservation physical and human capital stocks. However, these policies have ignored institutions and the important role of local customs and privileges. This book explicitly considers this institutional context and focuses on the rules that determine who controls physical and human resources and who benefits from their use. Applying the analytical tools from economics, law, anthropology, and political science, the authors consider the three main ingredients necessary for successful economies: stable government, minimal bureaucracies, and the rule of law
Self-determination : the other path for Native Americans( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book compares and contrasts historical and contemporary Canadian and U.S. Native American policy. The contributors include economists, political scientists, and lawyers, who, despite analyzing a number of different groups in several eras, consistently take a political economy approach to the issues. Using this framework, the authors examine the evolution of property rights, from wildlife in pre-Columbian times and the potential for using property rights to resolve contemporary fish and wildlife issues, to the importance of customs and culture to resource use decisions; the competition from states for Native American casino revenues; and the impact of sovereignty on economic development. In each case, the chapters present new data and new ways of thinking about old evidence. In addition to providing a framework for analysis and new data, this book suggests how Native American and First Nation policy might be reformed toward the end of sustainable economic development, cultural integrity, and self-determination. For these reasons, the book should be of interest to scholars, policy analysts, and students of Native American law, economics, and resource use, as well as those interested in the history of Native Americans and Canadas First Nations

Political environmentalism : going behind the green curtain( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Political Environmentalism, Terry Anderson and his contributors show how environmental special interests have indeed provided the high moral ground for economic special interests who stand to gain from legislation that hampers competition. The book documents a range of examples of how politics and environmentalism mix to produce strange bedfellows and perverse results. It shows, for instance, how clean air and water legislation based on technology standards actually results in dirtier air and higher costs to consumers. It tells how wilderness designations and Superfund sites are usually determined more by economic interests than by any other factor. And it reveals how the Endangered Species Act puts property rights up for grabs in the political arena - doing little to save species but consuming considerable resources in the process." "Throughout the book, Political Environmentalism boldly confronts specific environmental laws, asking whether they were motivated by environmental concerns. whether they achieve their goals, whether they are cost-effective - and, most important whether they in fact generate perverse results."--Jacket
Breaking the environmental policy gridlock( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions to this volume demonstrate how the principles of fiscal responsibility and individual accountability that have been applied to economic and social policies - essentially free market principles - can be applied successfully to environmental policy. The authors offer ten commonsense reforms as a starting point, all based on the compelling arguments that a new system of positive incentives can get us more environmental quality at lower cost. These reforms include land lease programs for nontraditional commodity production, long-term transferable land permits, landowner compensation for regulated endangered species property, and performance-based (as opposed to technology-based) water and air pollution laws

Greener than thou : are you really an environmentalist? by Terry L Anderson( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In six chapters, Terry Anderson and Laura Huggins make a powerful argument for free market environmentalism. They break down liberal and conservative stereotypes of what it means to be an environmentalist and show that, by forming local coalitions around market principles, stereotypes can be replaced by pragmatic solutions that improve environmental quality without increasing red tape."--Jacket
You have to admit it's getting better : from economic prosperity to environmental quality by Terry L Anderson( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the book, the authors repeatedly show that economic growth is not the antithesis of environmental quality: rather, the two go hand in hand if the incentives are right."--Jacket
Property rights : a practical guide to freedom and prosperity by Terry L Anderson( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book seeks to explain the crucial connection between secure property rights, freedom, and prosperity. Drawing on the thoughts of various philosophers, political thinkers, economists, and lawyers, the authors present a blueprint for the nonexpert on how societies can encourage or discourage freedom and prosperity through their property rights institutions. They detail step-by-step what property rights are, what they do, how they evolve, how they can be protected, and how they promote freedom and prosperity."--BOOK JACKET
