Abstract:

Reforming the Forest Service contributes a completely new view to the current debate on the management of our national forests. Randal O'Toole argues that poor management is an institutional problem; he shows that economic inefficiencies and environmental degradation are the inevitable result of the well-intentioned but poorly designed laws that govern the Forest Service. In this book, he proposes sweeping reforms in the structure of the agency and new budgetary incentives as the best way to improve management. This book is a must reading for environmentalists, academics, forest policy analysts, Forest Service officials, and members of Congress.
