The political economy of green taxes: The Belgian experience
AbstractThis article deals with the main problems encountered with the implementation of the ecotax law in Belgium. Ecotaxes are product taxes on drink containers, throw-away products, packaging of certain industrial goods, pesticides and fytopharmaceutical products, paper and batteries. The implementation of these taxes is supervised by a special commission of experts. It proves to be a complex tax, where fiscal, political and institutional problems are serious barriers that have to be overcome. Copyright Kluwer Academic Publishers 1996
