Terry Anderson will be speaking on Free Market Environmentalism and Lessons for the Trump Administration. Given that President Trump has a penchant for change, he could make a positive difference for the environment with some lessons from free market environmentalism. Terry Anderson will outline some win-win policies that the Trump administration could make happen.
Terry Anderson is professor emeritus of Economics at Montana State University, the William A. Dunn Distinguished Senior Fellow and former President and Executive Director of PERC, as well as the John and Jean De Nault Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. He believes that market approaches can be both economically sound and environmentally sensitive. His research helped launch the idea of free market environmentalism and has prompted public debate over the proper role of government in managing natural resources. He is the co-chair of Hoover's Property Rights, Freedom, and Prosperity Task Force.
Anderson is the author or editor of thirty-seven books. Among these, Free Market Environmentalism, co-authored with Donald Leal, received the 1992 Sir Antony Fisher International Memorial Award. Revised editions were published in 2001 and 2015.
Anderson is a pioneer in study on free market environmentalism. He continues to research case studies of enviro-capitalists. Water markets, public land management, and the economics of property rights remain important parts of his research agenda. He is also doing work on what drives economic growth on American Indian reservations. Anderson is a Montana native and an avid outdoorsman accomplished at big game hunting, bird shooting, fishing, skiing, and hiking.
A reception will follow in Linfield Hall 113.
