"The authors are as knowledgeable about Superfund in all its glory as anyone in America. This book should be read by everyone interested in the subject, but be careful, it may curl your hair."--William Ruckelshaus, Chairman, Browning Ferris Industries, former U.S.E.P.A. Administrator
The authors develop information on who is likely to pay the cost of the current Superfund program. They also explore the financial implications of changes in liability and taxes on four key sectors affected by Superfund: chemicals, oil, mining, and commercial property-casualty insurers. They analyze the different taxing mechanisms and liability schemes and compare the financial effects on specific industries of the current Superfund program and of several alternative liability and tax-based funding mechanisms available.
