  • Grau, Montserrat Viladrich

Resumen: En este artículo analizo las principales aportaciones a la teoría de la regulación medioambiental desarrolladas durante los últimos cuarenta años. Inicio este recorrido en los años sesenta con la presentación de las primeras contribuciones. A continuación, abordo el estudio de la década de los setenta, donde me centro de manera preferente en la comparación de las propiedades de los sistemas basados en incentivos económicos y de los basados en cantidades. Seguidamente me adentro en los desarrollos que surgieron durante los ochenta, concentrando mi atención en el análisis de los sistemas de licencias negociables. Por último, analizo como en la década de los noventa la regulación medioambiental se orienta hacia la búsqueda de soluciones para los problemas de contaminación global. Abstract: In this article I present the main contributions to the theory of environmental regulation developed during the last forty years. I begin the analysis in the sixties and seventies reviewing the main articles of these years, focusing in the comparison of the properties of the instruments based on economic incentives and of the instruments based on quantities. Next I evaluate the policy developments of the eighties, centering my attention on the generalization of the systems of marketable permits. Finally, I analyze how in the nineties the main interest of environmental regulation is oriented towards the solution of global environmental problems. Palabras Clave: Instrumentos regulación medioambiental.
