Public Policies for Environmental Protection by Professor Paul R. Portney

Book Description

The first edition of Public Policies for Environmental Protection contributed significantly to the incorporation of economic analysis in the study of environmental policy. Fully revised to account for changes in the institutional, legal, and regulatory framework of environmental policy, the second edition features updated chapters on the EPA and federal regulation, air and water pollution policy, and hazardous and toxic substances. It includes entirely new chapters on market-based environmental policies, global climate change, solid waste, and, for the first time, coverage of the Safe Drinking Water Act. Portney, Stavins, and their contributors provide an invaluable resource for researchers, policymakers, industry professionals, and journalists---anyone who needs up-to-date information on U.S. environmental policy. With their careful explanation of policy alternatives, the authors provide an ideal book for students in courses about environmental economics or environmental politics.

Books By Author Professor Paul R. Portney

Discounting and Intergenerational Equity by Professor Paul R. Portney Discounting and Intergenerational Equity, Hardback (February 1999)

The full effects of decisions made about many environmental policies - including climate change and nuclear waste - may not be felt for many years. This book argues that methods reasonable for measuring gains and losses for a generation into the future may not be appropriate when applied to a longer span of time.

Assigning Liability for Superfund Cleanups by Professor Paul R. Portney Assigning Liability for Superfund Cleanups, Paperback (June 1992)

While more than 2,700 emergency removals of hazardous materials have taken place under Superfund, implementing the long-term cleanup program has been the object of considerable controversy. This title analyzes the pros and cons associated with the liability approach, as well as with various alternative strategies.
