A Conceptual Analysis of the Economic Effects of an Effluent Charge on an Industry--An Exemplary Environmental Problem-Solving and Policy Development Aid Designed for Instructional Purposes.
Horn, B. Ray
This paper is addressed to the student already familiar with basic economic terms and concepts. It analyzes some existing policy alternatives by which sociopolitical units can attempt to modify environmental behavior. The primary objective of the paper is to construct a theoretical model of probabilistic effects that an effluent charge has on an industry. Application of a portion of the model is given, along with an evaluation of the completed tasks by specifying additional assumptions, limitations, and aspects needing further study. References are given. (Author/MA)
