Abstract: Designing policies to control conjoint pollution poses several difficulties for environmental authorities. This study aims to provide general conditions under which the relative efficiency of input-use taxes and standards can be judged in the presence of spatial heterogeneity. It also shows how consideration of prohibitive taxes on low-productivity land and nonbinding standards on low-input land affect the relative efficiency.
