Environmental Tax Policy and Long‐Run Economic Growth

Tetsuo Ono ()

The Japanese Economic Review, 2003, vol. 54, issue 2, 203-217

Abstract: This paper focuses on two competing effects of environmental taxation on long‐run economic growth. One is a negative force, which hampers production; the other is a positive force, which increases the level of environmental quality bequeathed to future generations. The analysis shows that there exists a critical level of the tax that balances one force with the other. If the tax is initially set below (or above) the critical level, then raising the tax rate is beneficial (or harmful) to economic growth. JEL Classification Numbers: D62, D91, H26, O11, O30, Q20
