Pollution, Property and Prices

J. H. Dales

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: In this classic book, originally published in 1968 by University of Toronto Press, John Dales proposed a new policy instrument for tackling pollution problems, namely ‘markets in pollution rights’. Dales was one of the first economists to put forward such a solution, and in subsequent years a system of emissions trading has evolved which is now a centrepiece in international discussions of how to address the problem of global climate change.
