Overview

In analyzing the effects of green taxes and voluntary agreements on the behavior of industrial polluters and pollution abatement, Enevoldesn (public policy, U. of Aarhus, Denmark) hypothesizes that predictors of environmental policy performance must take into account the nature and institutional configuration of the policy instrument, that green takes will generally be more effective than equally well- designed voluntary agreements, and that voluntary environmental agreements will tend to suffer from free-rider problems unless the social capital stakes are high. He tests these hypotheses in the cases of Austrian, Danish, and Dutch CO2 policies towards industry over the last two decades and subjects the findings to econometric analysis.
