What it's about
Free Markets Green Earth is the first podcast to tackle environmentalism from a free market libertarian perspective.
Each week we discuss news and philosophy concerning the ways in which, while seeming counter-intuitive, the free market is the best way to save mother earth.
Our hosts Nicky P & The Liberty Hippie show us the most important test in any examination especially when concerning the environment: Follow The Incentives.
- The Dead Seas Review: Captain Planet And The Planeteers - Free Markets Green Earth Vs 008December 8, 2020 at 12:00 am
In today's episode Ben & I review The Dead Seas, episode eight of Captain Planet and the Planeteers. I'm not sure if this has been clear this far into this run but I'm a bit of a softy when it comes to the oceans. I'm also unable to let people bullshit others about the issues pertaining to them. This is compounded when the issue centers around poor economics which has a surprisingly high […]
