About this book

By making polluting expensive, market-based approaches provide polluters with incentives to clean up, rather than mandates to stop polluting. The purpose of this volume is to explore the situations where Command and Control (CAC) may not be all bad, and in fact might even have some advantages over market-based instruments (MBI).
