Government Vs. Environment (Political Economy Forum)by Donald R. Lelal
Synopses & Reviews
Many Americans today view the government as the savior of the environment. When it comes to protecting land, fish, and wildlife, the common response is to let government do it. The contributors to Government Versus the Environment encourage us to consider government in a different light by looking at clear instances of public programs that foster environmental destruction. They provide an in-depth look at of how the political process can adversely impact the quality of our environment and argue that the government's track record in managing natural resources has been and continues to be abysmal. The case studies in Government Versus the Environment will cause readers to think twice about the all-too-familiar calls for more government for the sake of the environment.
