Economic theory and empirical models suggest that economic instruments should help us to meet environmental goals at a lower cost. Practical experience, however, shows that the cost savings of emission trading are smaller than expected and charges usually have had small incentive impacts.

This book gives the first comprehensive review of economic theory, simulation models, and practical experience of using economic instruments. It also focuses on air pollution control.

Because of its unique blend of theoretical and empirical research, the book provides interesting reading for both economists and those interested in environmental policy.

Part I examines theoretical aspects and simulation modeling within a national context. Part II surveys practical experience in a variety of countries. Part III explores international issues, such as joint implementation.
