Negotiating Environmental Quality

Policy Implementation in Germany and the United States

9781858989761 Edward Elgar Publishing
Markus A. Lehmann, Economic Advisor, Social, Economic and Legal Affairs, Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, United Nations Environment Programme, Canada
Publication Date: 2000 ISBN: 978 1 85898 976 1 Extent: 264 pp
Using strategic game theory, this innovative book carefully reviews the detailed negotiations between industry, regulating agencies, and third parties in environmental policy implementation. The analysis is underpinned by an institutional comparison of German and American administrative and environmental law.

After presenting an alternative model to address real-world bargaining, Markus Lehmann provides an economic rationale for the use of case-to-case regulation, a policy instrument traditionally neglected if not rejected by environmental economists. He discusses how and to what extent the shortcomings of this instrument can be overcome by a specific institutional design. He presents a clear-cut policy conclusion which is shown to be quite robust under different model structures and varying sets of assumptions.

This pathbreaking study will be essential reading for economists studying environmental economics and political economy, political scientists working on policy implementation and design, as well as lawyers interested in administrative law and standing, and the economic theory of the law.
