On May 20, 2022, the 16th Gottfried von Haberler Conference was held at the University of Liechtenstein – “On the Morality of the State and the State of Political Morals”. In today’s article, we publish the talk given by Terry L. Anderson at the Haberler Conference. It was titled “Restoring Liberty for American Indians”.
Terry Lee Anderson is an academic and author primarily focused on the intersection of economic and environmental issues in America. Anderson’s works argue that market approaches can be both economically sound and environmentally sensitive. Influenced by the Austrian school of Economics, his research helped launch the idea of free-market environmentalism and has prompted public debate over the proper role of government in managing natural resources.
Anderson received his B.S. from the University of Montana in 1968 and earned a PhD in economics from the University of Washington in 1972. Following graduation, he began a teaching career at Montana State University which spanned over 25 years, culminating in a professor emeritus position at the university. In 1980, Anderson, along with three colleagues who were also interested in environmental policy (Richard L. Stroup, John Baden and P.J. Hill), co-founded the Property and Environment Research Center (PERC), where he later became Executive Director and a William A. Dunn Distinguished Senior Fellow. Anderson is also a John and Jean De Nault Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.
Anderson is the author or editor of thirty-seven books. Among these, Free Market Environmentalism, co-authored with Donald Leal, received the 1992 Sir Antony Fisher International Memorial Award.
