Abstract

This book covers some of the most relevant issues in environmental economics. Its main emphasis is on the international dimension of environmental phenomena, which implies the necessity of designing properly co-ordinated economic/environmental policies. The issue of policy co-ordination is analysed both in the case in which environmental externalities arise because of cross-country and global pollution flows, and in the case in which trade and competitiveness effects induced by environmental regulation affect countries' relative economic performance. The context in which these issues are analysed relies on recent developments in game theory, industrial economics, and international trade, where imperfect competition and governments' strategic interactions are accounted for. Recognising that traditional environmental policy tools are not sufficient to regulate the present environment-economy interactions leads to appraising the effects of more sophisticated policy-mixes. In particular, policies to stimulate technological innovation, to regulate industrial markets, and to offset negative trade effects are examined in this book. Attention is also devoted to the issue of economic growth. Under which conditions is endogenous growth consistent with environmental protection? Which policy-mix can loosen the traditional trade-off between environment and growth? These are two among the many critical questions which are addressed in this book and which find very interesting, albeit preliminary, answers.
