Emissions Trading: Principles And Practice

First published in 1985, Emissions Trading was a comprehensive review of the first large-scale attempt to use economic incentives in environmental policy in the U.S. and of the empirical and theoretical research on which this approach is based. Since its publication it has consistently been one of the most widely cited works in the tradable permits literature. The second edition of this classic study of pollution reform considers how the use of transferable permits to control pollution has evolved, looks at how these programs have been implemented in the U.S. and internationally, and offers an objective evaluation of the resulting successes, failures, and lessons learned over the last twenty-five years.

I bought this to learn more about carbon trading as-in "Cap and Trade." I am an engineer and an experienced, motivated, environmental activist, but I am still I finding this book a hard go. Don't buy it unless you are really, really motivated!

I had to read this in grad school while studying for a masters in environmental economics. Though emissions trading schemes are such a huge part of combating climate change and improving air quality, there are several examples where it has failed (such as the European Union) versus succeeded (California). This book does a great job of giving an overview of the economic theory, but also digging into the nitty-gritty details that can end up making a difference in the real world. I wouldn't buy it for bedtime reading, but it was educational

It should be improve the equation and in general all mathematics expresions. The rest of the book is really good
