Description:

Eco-industrial parks, endangered species, entrepreneurship and coastal resource management, global warming, population growth, and regulation are among the hot topics examined in this review of environmental policies. Scholars such as Stephen M. Colarelli, Loren E. Lomasky, Craig S. Marxsen, Randal O'Toole, Sarah Peterson, and Richard L. Stroup consider the adoption of "free-market environmentalism" and offer new paradigms through which to view environmental policy. Contending that the existing maze of environmental laws and regulations have fostered huge government bureaucracies better known for waste and failure than innovation and success, this book dispels the economic and political misconceptions that permeate the national and international dialogue on the environment.
