Abstract

Pollution abatement goods and services are now largely being delivered by a specialized "eco-industry". This note reconsiders Pigouvian taxes in this context. We find that the optimal emission tax will depart from the marginal social cost of pollution according to the polluters' and the environment firms' relative market power.
