The volume is a succinct yet comprehensive survey of emission trading- a significant research and policy field of increasing importance for both Europe and the USA.

Against the background of environmental policy instruments in general, Dr. Klaassen presents a state-of-the-art survey of both the theory and actual applications of tradable permits. This survey also analyses international theory and experience. Later chapters examine the European acid rain issue and discuss how it can be addressed by means of tradable permits with particular relevance to sulphur emissions.

"Acid Rain and Environmental Degradation" responds to current European policy discussions to apply emission trading on a continental scale. Because of its unique blend of theory and practice, the volume not only sets the tone for future discussions in Europe on transboundary pollution control, but also offers something for the academic economist, the environmentalist and the policy maker.
