Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Environmental problems result from the tragedy of the commons. In order to solve those problems, free market environmentalists look toward the one place where the tragedy of the commons doesn’t happen – in markets with clearly defined, enforced, and tradeable property rights. Property rights give people the incentive to protect their assets, and environmental problems often come down to the fact no one has an incentive to conserve the environment.

Squaring Ends And Means

by Angelo M. Codevillavia Military History in the News
Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Self-determination for countries that had been occupied by Nazi Germany—Poland in particular—was foremost of the common objectives to which President Franklin Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winton Churchill committed on August 14, 1941 after meeting on the British battleship Prince of Wales off Newfoundland. Germany’s invasion of Poland had been the reason why Britain had declared war. Restoring Poland’s freedom was the war’s first-order objective. The Soviet Union’s 1939 partnership with Germany in that invasion and, by August 1941, its alliance with Britain, added a layer of difficulties.
