Economist opens Classical Liberalism series
Terry Anderson, an expert in free-market environmentalism, initiated the new Classical Liberalism Speaker Fund series this spring with a talk titled “Markets and the Environment: Friends or Foes?”
“Terry’s work on free-market environmentalism and property rights was read by students in courses in economics, politics and environmental studies this semester, so we were especially fortunate to have him visit campus,” said Jan Crouter, associate professor of economics. Anderson, the John and Jean DeNault Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, also is the executive director of the Property and Environment Research Center in Bozeman, Mont.
While on campus, Anderson met with students over lunch to discuss his research on the evolution of property rights in the western states. In the evening he visited with faculty and lectured. Anderson was “surprised and pleased by the interest of students in the subject,” Crouter said. “He was captured by students after the talk and spoke at length with them.”
