Economic Incentives and the Containment of Global Warming
This paper explores the role for economic instruments in the control of global warming. It begins with a review of what theory and practice have taught us about these instruments--pollution taxes and systems of transferable permits--in the pursuit of domestic environmental management. It then extends this analysis to a global framework and examines some of the difficult issues that arise in the design and implementation of such policy measures for the regulation of global emissions of greenhouse gases.
