About this book

Examines the arguments for and against recycling, focusing on the debate surrounding the use of economic mechanisms to determine the value of recycling. |Ackerman also gives an alternative view of the theory of market incentives, challenging the notion that setting appropriate prices and allowing unfettered competition will result in the most efficient level of recycling.
