  1. Transport, Welfare and Externalities

    Transport, Welfare and Externalities

    Dieter Schmidtchen, Christian Koboldt, Jenny Helstroffer, Birgit Will, Georg Haas, Stefan Witte
    This book discusses a paradigm shift for dealing with the internalization of external costs in transport. Crucial to the analysis is the insight that the polluters are not the only cost drivers; both pollutees and the state can also contribute to reducing social costs. The authors show that applying the Cheapest Cost Avoider Principle (CCAP) instead of the Polluter Pays Principle (PPP) can lead to substantial welfare improvements. Learn More

  2. Post Keynesian and Ecological Economics

    Post Keynesian and Ecological Economics

    Edited by Richard P.F. Holt, Steven Pressman, Clive L. Spash
    It is argued that mainstream economics, with its present methodological approach, is limited in its ability to analyze and develop adequate public policy to deal with current environmental problems and sustainable development. This book provides an alternative approach. Building on the strengths and insights of Post Keynesian and ecological economics and incorporating cutting edge work in such areas as economic complexity, bounded rationality and socio-economic dynamics, the contributors to this book provide a trans-disciplinary approach to deal with a broad range of environmental concerns.

  7. Distributional Impacts of Climate Change and Disasters

    Distributional Impacts of Climate Change and Disasters

    Edited by Matthias Ruth, María E. Ibarrarán

Economic, social and environmental impacts further increase vulnerability to disasters and tend to set back development, destroy livelihoods, and increase disparity nationally and worldwide. This book addresses the differential vulnerability of people and places, introducing concepts and methods for analysis and illustrating the impact on local, regional, national, and global scales.

  8. Climate Change and Agriculture

    Climate Change and Agriculture

    Robert Mendelsohn, Ariel Dinar
    Despite its great importance, there are surprisingly few economic studies of the impact of climate on agriculture and how agriculture can adapt under a variety of conditions. This book examines 22 countries across four continents, including both developed and developing economies. It provides both a good analytical basis for additional work and solid results for policy debate concerning income distributional effects such as abatement, adaptation, and equity. Learn More

    Modelling Sustainable Development

    Edited by Valentina Bosetti, Reyer Gerlagh, Stefan P. Schleicher
    This insightful book explores the issue of sustainable development in its more operative and applied sense.

This book redresses the balance. Learn More

  17. Markets for Carbon and Power Pricing in Europe

    Markets for Carbon and Power Pricing in Europe

    Edited by Francesco Gullì
    Why do power prices seem to be correlated with the carbon price in some markets and not in others? This crucial question is at the centre of Francesco Gullì’s enlightening book, through which the contributing authors investigate a number of related issues. In particular, they explore why power firms are not consistent in passing-through into power prices the opportunity cost of carbon. They also examine the relationship between the pass-through mechanism and the structure of the power market. Learn More

  19. Corporate Strategies and the Clean Development Mechanism

    Corporate Strategies and the Clean Development Mechanism

    Søren E. Lütken, Axel Michaelowa
    Mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol. It explains why, instead of the expected bilateral structure where a company from an industrialized country invests in a project in a developing country and receives the emission reduction credits in return, a unilateral structure prevails whereby a company from a developing country finances the emission reduction project itself and sells the emission reduction credits. The book arrives at three fundamental, interconnected, conclusions: CDM is logically a unilaterally driven investment activity; CDM investment is an irrelevant compliance instrument for companies from industrialised countries and that this state of affairs is unlikely to change post 2012; and CDM thrives in less equal and less ambitious post-2012 climate regimes.
