About this title


Why is it that market instruments have not been used to their full potential in environmental policy? Using a public choice perspective, this book critically analyzes the political economy of environmental policy with special emphasis on the role of powerful interest groups which have blocked the introduction of market instruments. Drawing on new case studies of market instruments, Dr. Dijkstra examines the attitude of interest groups and how they influence environmental policy. He discusses the preferences of shareholders and workers in the polluting industry, the environmental movement and the environmental bureaucracy. He then investigates the circumstances under which market instruments will have a low or no probability of being accepted, assuming that they are welfare-maximizing. The Political Economy of Environmental Policy will be a welcome addition to the existing literature and will be of interest to environmental and ecological economists, policy makers, political scientists and public choice scholars.
