Environmental Preservation: A Matter of Property

As showed by Andrew Pack, he idea that the world would be stable and that there is an optimum balance has been denounced by l. von Mises Indeed, the concept of the Evenly Rotating Economy assumes that the future will be no different from the past and that it was dealing with an anthill and not to a company human.

But environmentalists have embraced this idea by applying it to Nature which allows them to declare that all environmental changes are the result of the greed of men. Property rights involve the responsibility of the polluter who will be conducted to adapt the exploitation of the resources in the physical and institutional conditions.

The contrexemple is that of communist societies where the absence of property rights exacerbates pollution justifies restrictions on freedom and hinders the adaptation to conditions environmental change.
