Natural Capital - The Battle for Biodiversity

This short OECD economics video looks at the decline of natural capital and what policy interventions might be needed to slow down or halt the process. This includes taxing negative externalities, reducing harmful subsidies, paying farmers for environmental husbandry and using bio-diversity offsets.
