Libertarianism and the Free Market at Work

I heard for years that there is no money in conservation, and that Libertarians would trash the planet, well here is how a free market system really works.

When a problem/service/product becomes important enough to people that they will make purchasing decisions based on their core beliefs, then the market will rise to the occasion by creating a solution/product that meets the consumers needs.

Government cannot do this, because all they ever provide is a one size fits all solution, and if the solution is an incorrect one, it does matter, as government does not have to adapt to market pressures.

Like I have said before, if you are willing to propose a solution to a problem you need to be willing to put YOUR money where your mouth is, and this is an excellent example of what I mean by that.

It is also a fine example of what a free market system can do to improve both the ecology and the economy.

Not a damn thing wrong with the Nature Conservancy, in fact I have given them a good bit of money over the years.

They do conservations the way it should be done, privately.

The NC identifies areas they feel are worth preserving and then they buy them. This puts them under their control forever, or until the government wants the land for something else and seizes it. lol

The Nature Conservancy is the perfect example of putting ones money where their month is. If it's important enough to save than save it!
