Overview

Previously published between 1985 and 2002, the 28 papers that Carraro (econometrics and environmental economics, U. of Venice, Italy) collects here address three major issues related to the effort to manage global environmental problems. Contributions examine a framework of sustainable development in terms of coalition formation theory; explore the design of institutions and policy rules that will minimize incentives to free ride in such areas as global warming and ozone depletion; and discuss applications related to climate change, the ozone layer, biodiversity, and acid rain.
