Conservative Principles for Environmental Reform - PodcastIn his essay titled “Conservative Principles for Environmental Reform,” Professor Jonathan Adler provides a critique of the environmental regulatory architecture and traditional approaches to environmental policy put in place in the 1970s, such as command-and-control.  He notes that conservatives have failed to engage in the substance of environmental policy and have failed to come up with alternatives to the conventional environmental paradigm and its emphasis on regulatory intervention and the centralization of regulatory authority in the federal government.  On this previously recorded conference call, Prof. Adler discusses these and other issues, including an alternative conservative approach to environmental policies, with commentary and questions from Prof. Donald Kochan.
