Green conservatism: protecting the environment through open markets
How can we ensure real competition in resource markets, and avoid concentrated market power? How can we truly encourage enterprise and open up markets to communities, citizens and other new entrants to enable diverse ownership? And how does this play out in sectors such as energy, carbon trading, food, waste, housing and transport?
Green conservatism: protecting the environment through open markets, the last of three contributor pamphlets under our Green Roots programme, sets out to answer these crucial questions. Bringing together contributions from conservative thinkers and independent experts it looks at how the market can deliver solutions to our resource and environmental constraints.
“Conservative thinkers understand environmental problems and they are more than ready to roll their sleeves up to deal with them. I am sure these essays will make an important contribution to our national debate.”
