Resumen: Gretchen C. Daily and Katherine Ellison, describes the possibility of using private markets to protect the environment. Because people care about environmental goods and services (products), they are often willing to pay to protect them. If those willing "buyers" can be brought together with those who can provide ecosystem products, then everyone wins, including the environment. This book tells ten stories of possible for-profit opportunities for environmental protection. As enthusiastic as the authors are for this new paradigm for ecosystem products, reasons exist that markets for these products have often not worked. The authors use economic theory to argue that private markets are not likely to provide adequate levels of public (environmental) goods and services because each person will hope that someone else will provide them. Market-based successes for providing environmental products deserve to be celebrated, but not as an alternative to the role of the public sector.
