It's one thing to be passionate about protecting the environment. It's another thing to be successful at it. Many laws have been enacted to clean up pollution or preserve natural beauty, but many of them don't work and others have unintended consequences. In this book, Stroup explains why many of our environmental laws have failed us and how we might go about doing a better job of protecting nature. Eco-nomics is an indispensable guide to learning how to think about both economics and the environment.
