The State Can't Protect the Environment – Markets Can
We should encourage a vast array of experiments about how best to reconcile (indeed integrate) environmental concerns with economic ones. Unfortunately, mainstream ­­economists of the progressive era became enamored of making economics a quantitative “science” and forgot the role of institutions.

The institutions necessary to allow environmental market transactions to solve the problems were simply not allowed to evolve.

Turkey is reported to have stopped the issuance of licenses for the duty-free import of Russian wheat, corn, and other agricultural goods, thus introducing a 130% tariff for wheat in one of Russia's largest export markets.
