El propósito de este papel es describir los principales instrumentos económicos que pueden utilizarse en la política medio ambiental. Se examinan críticamente las soluciones clásicas, sin olvidar las espurias. Se introduce el tiempo en el análisis, se examina la importancia de la tasa de descuento en el cálculo económico y se presenta el concepto de economías de duración, para estudiar el conflicto entre los intereses individuales y el social y generar propuestas de solución. Se presta especial atención al conflicto entre los intereses de las generaciones presentes y las futuras, apuntando algunas vías para solventarlo.
