Don Fullerton edits volume in the "New Horizons in Environmental Economics" series
Thu, Jan 19, 2006

This cohesive volume analyzes how country characteristics determine environmental rules, how those rules affect production costs, trade and investment flows, how those flows affect pollution, prices and incomes and finally how all of these last considerations feed back into environmental rules.
