Overview

Comprising 22 essays by international scholars in agriculture, engineering, environment, and economics, this anthology focuses on the environmental effectiveness of market-based policies, especially taxes, to improve the environment. Taxes levied at different stages and in different ways during a product's life-cycle are compared with other market-based instruments such as charges, subsidies, tradable emission permits, and deposit-refund systems. Environmental taxes are also compared to liability and insurance schemes, and to green labeling. Several essays concentrate on the transaction and information costs associated with market-based policy instruments. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
