Teaching Environmental Economics for Action

Montana offers leading edge environmental economics retreats and conferences at the PERC center

water economics for California sustainable environment Integrity has a high price. We aren't taught that fact of life...at least those who are taught that integrity is a good thing. It does often appear that those with integrity don't get ahead or get rewarded as much or as rapidly as those with questionable ethics. But many people with integrity -- concern for human rights, or environmental balance or justice...any universal condition -- continue to work in spite of the costs of their chosen path.

I ran onto the following organization's website and thought it sounded interesting. In exploring their online presence, I found some interesting work is going on.

PERC's Enviropreneur Camp is an intense, two-week educational experience in Bozeman, Montana, for environmental entrepreneurs who want to have a better understanding of how business and economic principles can be applied to environmental problems.

PERC's Executive Enviropreneur Seminars are three-day programs designed to offer advanced applications of free market environmentalism. Some topics that are covered in the seminars will be similar to ones offered at the Enviropreneur Camp but are more in-depth. These will be offered in various locations and will include topics such as marketing, contracting, business planning, and budgeting.

Four-day residential programs for Teachers are presented by the Foundation for Teaching Economics. During these programs, teachers learn how to use economic principles to analyze environmental issues.

The Julian Simon Fellowship is one of the nation's most prestigious opportunities for scholars to develop policy-oriented research on natural resource and environmental conservation. The in-residence fellowship is intended to continue the legacy of the late Julian Simon, whose research led to a massive re-evaluation by scholars and policy makers of their views on the interplay between population, natural resources, and the environment.

Lone Mountain Fellowships offer a unique opportunity for scholars, journalists, policy-makers, and environmentalists to advance our understanding of the role of markets and property rights in protecting and enhancing environmental resources.

PERC - Property and Environment Research Center is the nation's oldest and largest institute dedicated to original research that brings market principles to resolving environmental problems. Located in Bozeman, Montana, PERC pioneered the approach known as free market environmentalism, which is based on the following tenets.

  • Private property rights encourage stewardship of resources.
  • Government subsidies often degrade the environment.
  • Market incentives spur individuals to conserve resources and protect environmental quality.
  • Polluters should be liable for the harm they cause others.
