Double Dividended Environmental Taxation and Canadian Carbon Emissions Control
AbstractThe possibility of using revenues from environmental taxes to reduce other distortions in the tax system has been much discussed recently. This paper reviews the current debate and presents empirical evidence to suggest that the double dividend approach to CO2 emissions control in Canada can significantly reduce the costs involved, and possibly eliminate aggregate welfare and output reductions due to implementation of a carbon tax.
