Speaker to Discuss Free Market Environmentalism

Guest speaker, Dr. Randy T. Simmons, will speak on free market environmentalism. The event is free to the public 7 p.m. Sept. 20 in the Baldwin Hall Little Theatre.

Simmons, professor of political economy at Utah State University, earned his Ph.D. in political science from the University of Oregon with an emphasis in public choice. He is a senior fellow at the Property and Environmental Research Center as well as the independent institute. He has written several books, including “Beyond Politics: The Roots of Government Failure” and “Nature Unbound: Bureaucracy vs. Environment.”

Explore how markets encourage cooperation instead of conflict over natural resources and how property rights make the environment an asset by giving owners incentives for stewardship. This event is hosted by the Department of Economics.
