    Abstract

    In this essay, it is shown that in the Hoel and Karp (2001) model of global warming, the optimal response of taxes for a stock pollutant with mutiplicative uncertainty is opposite when the control variable is pollution taxes instead of emissions. In this case, the election of control variable implies different information assumptions about the firm's reaction to emission taxes. The results in both cases are driven by the nature of the policy maker´s preferences
