Incentives for Nonpoint Pollution Control

James Shortle ()

No 271014, 1990 Annual meeting, August 5-8, Vancouver, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Emissions-based standards and incentives have received considerable attention in the economic literature on pollution control. However, emissions-based instruments are inappropriate for nonpoint pollution. Two input-based incentive structures for nonpoint pollution control are presented. One is incentive compatible and capable of achieving the ex ante efficient outcome. The second economizes on information but with a corresponding loss of efficiency.
