    Eco-Capitalism, sometimes referred to as Green Capitalism but mainly called Free Market Environmentalism is the son of Cap.png Capitalism and Envi.png Environmentalism, he believes that the market desire for more eco-friendly products combined with more resource-efficient products being more profitable, charity and the owners of property not wanting their property polluted would naturally limit the amount of pollution of the earth's environment.

    History

    The roots of eco-capitalism can be traced back to the late 1960s. The Tragedy of the Commons, an essay published in 1968 in Garrett Hardin's Science magazine, argues that the Malthusian catastrophe is inevitable as a result of liberal or democratic government policies, so that the question of family size remains with the family and willing to take care of potential human overpopulation. Hardin argued that if families were given freedom of choice in this matter, but were removed from the welfare state, parents who chose to outgrow would not have the resources to provide for their "litter", thus addressing the problem of overpopulation. This is the first argument made from an eco-capitalist point of view: overpopulation will technically be solved by the free market. John Baden, a Garrett Hardin contributor to other works, including Managing the Commons, founded the Political Economy Research Center (now Property and Environment Research Center) in 1982. As one of the first eco-capitalist organizations established, PERC's ongoing mission is to "improve the quality of the environment through property rights and markets." The most popular eco-capitalist idea was emissions trading or cap and trade. Emissions trading, a market-based approach that allows polluters to buy or obtain permits, began to be explored in the late 1960s. International emissions trading was greatly promoted in the 1990s, when the UN adopted the Kyoto Protocol in 1997.
