Overview of Taking the Environment Seriously: The Political Economy Forum

After two decades of high-cost, low-output federal efforts to protect and improve environmental quality in the United States, the contributors to this volume argue that it is time to consider market-oriented solutions to environmental problems. Taking the Environment Seriously means learning from past experiences, initiating regulatory approaches that truly protect environmental property, and becoming serious about the business of managing and protecting environmental quality.

The authors provide a well-equipped team to address the complex legal and economic issues involved in environmental issues. The editors have selected an outstanding panel of like-minded specialists to provide both perspective and depth to their search for 'what works' rather than what merely sounds concerned.
