A Framework for Economic Decision Making and Policy Analysis
(New Horizons in Environmental Economics)
Kanwalroop Kathy Dhanda,
Description: This original book presents a new basis for environmental policy-making: environmental networks. This framework graphically simplifies the analysis of environmental problems and emphasizes the spatial nature of economic activity and pollution dispersion.
The book first discusses the foundations of environmental economics before going on to apply the environmental network approach to different firm structures. The authors then extend the analysis to incorporate multiple products and pollutants, the presence of transaction costs, the availability of investment in production technologies, and the issue of noncompliance versus compliance. They also apply the network approach to pollution caused by transportation and assess the success of permits in limiting this. The authors then formulate integrated models, analyzing the use of permits and taxes in firms, producers, and consumers, as well as transportation and trade routes.
This book will be of interest
to students, researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers in environmental
and transport economics.
