Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Nine papers by Dutch economists and social scientists from the National Environment Forum explore the use of economic instruments to implement environmental policy, an idea that has been of growing interest in Europe. Considering practical design rather than overall theory, they argue that such instruments can substantially promote sustainable development if their features are carefully matched to the character of the specific environmental problem. Among the problems and instruments they discuss are nutrient emissions from agriculture, carbon policy, solvent tax, waste, pricing and tradable permits for transport, and environmental tax reform. Suitable as a supplementary text in an intermediate level course on environmental economics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
